We are a friendly village church, whose aim is to be a fellowship of Christians, worshipping together, developing our awareness of God and seeking to demonstrate God's love in the village and beyond. We are part of the united Benefice of Coxheath, East Farleigh, Linton, Hunton and West Farleigh, within the Diocese of Rochester, in the Church of England. The Rector is the Rev Peter Callway. He is assisted by Self Supporting Ministers Rev’d David Jones and Rev'd Eileen Doyle. St Nicholas Linton is a fairly traditional church but with some less formal services. We welcome visitors to all services and access can be arranged at other times. Please contact the Churchwarden if you wish to visit the church outside of service times.
We welcome applications for Baptism and Marriages from people living in the village and such services can take place in St Nicholas Church or any of the other four churches in the group, namely: The Parish Church of East Farleigh; St Mary’s, Hunton; Holy Trinity, Coxheath, and All Saint’s West Farleigh. The clergy are available to take funerals at any of our churches or at the crematorium at Vinters Park, Maidstone.
The clergy are also available for consultation, home visits or to give Holy Communion to the house bound at all times.
There are some very fine monuments in the church, particularly in the Cornwallis Chapel, some by E H Baily (sculptor of Nelson in Trafalgar Square). We have a NADFAS Church Trail for children up to 12 years. Rather like some of the National Trust site questionnaires for children, though more intense, church trails identify special characteristics in the church for children of up to 12 to follow, search and check against the ultimately revealed answers. We consider that the trail is of interest to all ages, though! Families, school and Church groups as well as individuals are welcome.
