Church of England Diocese of Rochester Westerham

St Mary the Virgin, Westerham

Welcome to St Mary's Church, located in the centre of Westerham in Kent.   

At the moment our church building is closed for public worship and to visitors, but  our Katharine Chapel is open for private prayer on Wednesdays from 11.00 - noon and we are planning to hold a church service on Sundays at 10.30am from 26th July.    But 'church' is more than the building... so please look around this site where there are details of live (via Facebook) and recorded (via YouTube) events, as well as links to resources to enable us to worship from home.

We are not perfect, but we invite anyone to join with us as we are discovering more about the love of God and learning  how we can reflect that love to each other.

If you want to talk with the vicar about anything, then please contact Revd Kevin on 01959 563127 or email  [email protected]


The parish of Westerham: St Mary the Virgin is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer, PSO.

If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
