Church of England Diocese of Rochester Yalding

About Us

We are a friendly parish church, serving a semi-rural village in West Kent. Our congregation is made up of Christians from both Anglican and free church traditions. We try to provide something for all.

Worship in Yalding is mainly based on the Common Worship Eucharist, usually accompanied by a robed choir. Our Benefice consists of 3 Churches in 2 Parishes with 3 Church of England Primary Schools. 

We have Holy Communion in the Benefice 3 times a week (1st, 2nd & 3rd Sunday at 9.30am) and an All Age Worship at 10am (4th Sunday). We also have a Said Communion at 10.30am on Wednesday’s. Please see our website for more details www.yaldingchurches.co.uk

All are welcome in our Churches, and those whose usual practice is to take Holy Communion are welcome to share with us or to come and receive God's Blessing. 

We have developed thriving Junior and Youth sections, perhaps as a result of having two Church of England primary schools located in the parish - with a third primary school in the other parish of the benefice.

Junior Church for up to 17 years takes place during the main Sunday service and operates in term times, in addition to all this we have a Little Fishes group for the very young, run by our Mothers’ Union.

There has been a church in Yalding since the 12th century. Our church was much re-ordered in Victorian times. Since building works in 2002 we now have modern soundproofed meeting rooms, a servery and toilet facilities, all located within the church building.

For further information on baptisms or weddings, please contact our parish administator on [email protected] or our Churchwardens whose details are on our website.

Come and visit us – you’ll be welcome!
