Welcome to the website for
St Mary of Charity. 
St Mary of Charity is one of the churches in The Benefice of Faversham.


From 1 April 2019 St Mary of Charity church and churchyard is open from
9 am until 5 pm daily. 


St Mary of Charity is an Inclusive Church.

Inclusive Church is a Christian organisation with the aim of advocating for the full inclusion of all people in Christian churches.  It seeks "to raise awareness about the ways that people feel excluded by the church".  It unites Christians around this statement of belief:

"We believe in inclusive Church - church which does not discriminate, on any level, on grounds of economic power, gender, mental health, physical ability, race or sexuality.  We believe in Church which welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ; which is scripturally faithful; which seeks to proclaim the Gospel afresh for each generation; and which, in the power of the Holy Spirit, allows all people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Jesus Christ."

Please do close the glass doors behind you when entering and leaving the building!  It can get very cold in the church, even when sunny outside!

This Sunday is Refugee Sunday

St Mary of Charity will be hosting
a joint Deanery service
led by Archdeacon Stephen
at 10 am on Sunday, 30 June 2019.

Please join with us and other brothers and sisters in Christ in the Deanery to worship God and share in fellowship.

The service will be followed by hospitality, including a cake stall raising money for this year's Benefice Holiday Club, Kingdom Keepers. 
Please join us
(and bring your pocket money!)

Our Vicar,
Rev Simon Rowlands is currently on a sabbatical.
If you need to speak to a priest on a pastoral matter during June

This year's Benefice of Faversham Holiday Club
will be running from
12 to 16 August 2019

If you would like to visit the church, please do check our Coming Services page to ensure that the church will not have a service taking place. 

Tour Guides: please check with the Parish Administrator if you will be bringing a large group to the church.  Please try to ensure your group closes the glass doors behind you when you enter and leave.  It gets very cold in the church (and in sunny weather birds sometimes fly into the church)!
