Schools & Care Homes

We really care about building relationships in our community. We regularly lead services in two local care homes for our neighbours who are unable to make it to church on a Sunday. We also support a number of local schools by taking part in or leading their assemblies and Christian Unions. Our church school is Lady Boswell’s Primary School. For more information about our relationship with Lady Boswell’s school, click here.

Praying for Sevenoaks

We are committed to praying for our local area. One of the ways that we’ve done this is by handing out cards to local businesses. If you would like us to pray for you, please get in touch with the office.

Litter Pick

Once every two months we participate in a litter pick around our local area. We believe it’s important to care for our community and our world in this way. For more information about our next litter pick, contact the church office or check our calendar.

Walking Group

On the first Tuesday of each month we meet in the church car park at 9.30am and go for a walk through Knole Park.  You are very welcome to come along!

Creation Care

We care deeply about creation and we think it’s really important to look after it. Our creation care team have worked on a number of initiatives to help us all care for creation better. For more information see our creation care resource.

Bellringing

There are eight bells in our tower, the tenor (F) weighing 16-2-10. The current ring dates from 1966, when all eight bells were recast by Mears & Stainbank from the metal of the previous peal.

The bells are rung before the 11am and 6.30pm services, with a practice at 8pm on Mondays.

In addition the bells can be requested for weddings and funerals and are, on occasions, rung to mark significant local or national events.

For further details please contact Caroline Stockmann or Michael Stuttard via the church office.
