Church Services

Our Church buildings that are open for Private Prayer:

Newnham: daily        Doddington: Wednesdays & Sundays 10-4.    Teynham: Saturdays 10-4    

Wychling: Wednesday, Saturday & Sunday 10-4 

At PUBLIC WORSHIP SERVICES, in accordance with current regulations we ask that each household maintains 2m Social Distancing,  that you wear a face covering and use the hand sanitiser provided. At present Congregational singing is not permitted inside but we will enjoy listening to hymns being sung for us. For Funerals the maximum permitted attendance depends n the size of the Church building and the numbers in each household. From 17th May the maximum numbers permitted for weddings is 30, but that is due to change from 21st June if the situation allows the planned move through the Stages of opening up.

However, the current advice is that if you are clinically vulnerable you should stay at home and join in our virtual services.

Welcome to the parish of Kingsdown and Creekside encompassing the villages of Teynham. Lynsted with Kingsdown, Norton, Oare and Luddenham, Newnham, Doddington and Wychling. We are 7 distinctive parish churches, Messy Church and Breakthrough (a modern informal service with worship band) working together to see God’s Kingdom grow.
We recognise Jesus as the centre of all we are, the importance of our relationships with God and each other as human beings and Jesus’ call of us to his mission.
Do come in and look around, but even more so we look forward to seeing you at one of our worship services or other events.
