Church of England Diocese of Rochester Ifield

Ifield: St Margaret

We are a small friendly group of people, all local, who love to worship in this beautiful and ancient Church.  We try to be welcoming and to get to know you if you're a visitor - everyone's story is so interesting. We don't do formality or stand on ceremony - when things go wrong (not infrequently!) we can laugh about it. God gives joy, doesn't He? 

We aim to adhere fully to National and Diocesan safeguarding policies and procedures: for details of these please go to If you have a concern please contact Mrs Carey Laughland on 01474 561483 or Rev Richard Martin 01474 249792. Or you could ring Mr Greg Barry the Diocesan safeguarding officer on 01634 560000. Childline's number is 0800 1111.


There will be no public worship in our Church until further notice. as of 24 March it will no longer be open for private prayer either.  please keep praying, especially for God's mercy and healing, for the most vulnerable, and those who have to keep working in Care homes, hospitals, prisons, shops, the media etc.

In the meantime.....
