Church of England Diocese of Rochester St. Aidan, Gravesend

St Aidan

Welcome to the parish church of St Aidan, Gravesend.

You are assured of a warm welcome here. St Aidan's is a church for all ages and backgrounds and we serve our diverse and wonderful community through worship, yes, but also through various activities in the community. More on this as 2021 unfolds and more becomes possible. We have good links with local schools, Primary and Secondary and have a very popular nursery. We look forward to meeting you!

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

From Lament to Action St Aidan's welcomes and supports the recent report on racism in the Church of England and its call for racial justice. The full report can be read at
