Welcome to Saint Martin's - the Parish Church of Barnehurst

We are pleased to say that the church is now open for our 10:30am Sunday Morning Worship.

St Martin's 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). The Diocese of Rochester’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our 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.


If your Banns are due to be read at St. Martin's then please contact Father Gareth, The Vicar of Saint Martin’s and the Vicar or Priest-in-Charge of the parish in which you are to be married.
