Services

We have two main churches in our parish, All Saints Snodland and Christ Church Lower Birling. All Saints Church is an ancient building (mentioned in the Domesday Book) located close to Snodland railway station and at a point where the Pilgrims Way crosses the river Medway. Christ Church is on the Malling Road opposite St Katherine’s Lane.

St Benedict’s Church, Paddlesworth is also in our parish, but it is closed and currently maintained by the Friends of Kent Churches. We are permitted to hold one or two services there and do so at Christmas, Easter (in Holy Week) and Harvest.

We have a varied pattern of worship, but normally every Sunday there is an 8.00 am Book of Common Prayer Holy Communion Service at All Saints, a main 10.00 am service at Christ Church, and a 5.00pm evening service at All Saints Church.

For special services (eg around Christmas and Easter) please see the website calendar / Diary Dates. ‘Explorers’ (Sunday School) take place most Sundays except for when there is a Family Service.
