A really beautiful church with plenty of history. It is worth a visit if you are in the area. The services are made really special and a lot of thought go into them. The choir are very good too.

A beautifully maintained Church which is one of the largest parish Churches in Kent if not beyond. It is steeped in history, and is certainly worth a visit to take in the history and general ambience of the building

This is a beautiful church with an amazing spire that you can see from across the creek and beyond. It is situated next to Tesco (2 hours free parking) so you can nip in there for your shopping at the same time.

We squeezed in a visit in between morning service and a baptism. This beautiful church, which has been adapted indoors, reflecting Georgian and Victorian taste, is welcoming and impressive in size. Interesting tombs, the original reredos, magnificent choir, and an intriguing painted pillar were worth long inspection.

This Church witnesses the travails and fortunes of an English community across ten centuries. Arguably the largest parish church in Kent, it is the home of a strong Christian body which powers a latter day mission to the modern secular world.

we had heard so much about this church and wanted to see it, sadly this church was closed so we couldn't see inside but worse than that half the graveyard was locked up and the open section was overgrown.

This large church is in the town centre and is shaped like a cross and full of interesting articles.. Inside is a chapel dedicated to those lost in war and elsewhere a lot of memorials to local men lost in action in the Great war.
