About Us

We are a lively evangelical church in the Elms Vale area of the port town of Dover. We welcome everyone to any of our services and offer activities to meet a range of needs and ages. For more information please follow us on Facebook St Martins Church Dover 

During the week we have a lively baby and toddler group, a group for people to come and meet each other (CAMEO) and we are developing our outside space into a community peace garden. Look at our events and news pages for more info. 

As a Parochial Church Council (PCC) we have adopted the safeguarding policies and procedures of the Church of England. We are committed to…

• safeguarding all children, young people and vulnerable adults

• carefully selecting and training staff and volunteers, using the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) amongst other tools, to check their suitability

• responding without delay to every complaint made which suggests that an adult, child or young person may have been harmed or is at risk

• cooperating fully with the police, local authority and any other appropriate statutory body in any investigation

• ministering appropriately to anyone who has experienced abuse

• extending pastoral care to offenders, whilst ensuring that children and vulnerable adults are protected from harm
