Church of England Diocese of Canterbury Buckland-in Dover St. Andrew with St. Nicholas Buckland Valley

About Us

We are one of five parishes within the Dover Town Benefice, a team ministry serving the town of Dover and village of Guston.

The original pre-fab church was built in the post WW2 years to serve the new Buckland valley estate.  The current church was dedicated in 1960.  

The church is divided into:

(1) a purpose built nursery space which is home to the Buckland and Whitfield (Sure Start) Children's Centre providing support for families of young children; and

(2) a<span style="font-size: 1rem;"> multi-functional worship space which is home to a weekly Messy Church community (established by Cross-Links, an ecumenical fresh expression of church situated on the estate).  This also used for meetings and social activities.</span>

<span style="font-size: 1rem;">There are no Sunday services (Messy Church meets on a Friday after school) but there are occasional info</span><span style="font-size: 1rem;">rmal services and weddings, funerals and christenings may take place by arrangement.</span>

Our other (main parish) church is dedicated to St Andrew and is situated off the Buckland Bridge on London Road, accessed along a narrow road leading to a cul-de-sac. It is practically invisible until you come across it! It is adjacent to the Buckland Paper Mill development.  For more information about St Andrew's follow this link https://www.achurchnearyou.com/church/3530/
