Faversham Town Council's WWI Bunting Project

If you are visiting St Mary of Charity to find out details of one of Faversham's fallen from WWI for the Faversham Bunting project, you will find the folder with names and details is in the church's Trinity Chapel, to the right (south) of the chancel.  It is next to the altar, by the step into the chancel.  You may want to check the 'coming services' page on this site to ensure that there are no services on when you plan to come to the church and that the church will be open.  Alternatively, you can contact the Family History team.   They hold information on many of the fallen from most of the Faversham area.  



St Mary of Charity is a
Pokemon Go Gym!  

The church is generally open to visitors between 9 am until 5 pm daily, and you may be able to find Pokemon lurking outside the building too.  The nearest Pokestops are outside Tesco, St Mary's Court (in Church Road), Rigden's Brewery Building (the Brewmaster's House), the Brewery shop, The Creek Hotel, the Baptist Church and the Library.
