Welcome to the Parish Church of St Mary, Westham. 

This is a historic church believed to be the first Church built by the Normans. 

Although we are proud of our heritage the thing that most characterises us is our love for the Lord Jesus Christ and our desire to see His Kingdom here on earth as well as in heaven. 

We believe the Bible to be the inspired word of God.  We encourage our congregation to come regularly around the Lord’s Table to be fed by word (teaching from the Bible) and sacrament (Communion or Eucharist)

We have many activities to help us grow together, ranging from home and study groups to social activities We pride ourselves in our welcome and would love you to visit one of our services.

 

Present use of the Church (July 2020)

The maximum permitted number in the Church at any time is 12. So if you arrive and there are 12 people already there, please wait outside until it is clear to enter. Please use the cleaning equipment and observe the no-entry areas. Take care when entering and exiting. There is only one door in regular use, but with glass on the inner door this should not be a problem.

The Churchwardens will not steward, as I am still working and Val can't be there all the time. We will rely on visitors observing the rules.

If you do go to the Church, you will notice that it looks quite bare as all books have had to be removed from public areas, and also notices and toys. Use of a kneeler is permitted within a 72-hour period. Currently social-distancing is 2 meters, but as you know the rules change daily and I will email updates regularly.

We hope that soon we will have news of resuming services in some form.

Please remember to let me have names to add to the Prayer list, and do email us if you are unsure of anything regarding the Church.


If you know of people that are not on email please pass the news on.
