Coronavirus Safety Update : Services Update 
Further to our decision to suspend services in church over Christmas and the New Year, the Vicar and Churchwardens have agreed that live services will not resume until further notice. 

We are sorry for the continued disruption, but feel that local levels of infection are still far too high to justify a return to live services.

 Sunday 17th January:

Introducing St Mary’s Church community

St. Mary's Church  in Leigh, Kent  has been the centre of Christian life in the village  and a focus for the local community for hundreds of years.  St Mary's holds a variety of services formal and informal, traditional and modern. They include services based on the traditional Book of Common Prayer, formal Common Worship services, and two lively Family Services monthly
+ Fortnightly Forest Church for Children.
On some occasions we move our services to the village green.
At Christmas, Easter and on other significant dates such as Remembrance Sunday our church is full to overflowing, but we always find room for everyone. Whatever the time of year we always welcome visitors or newcomers to church. Check the website or our monthly parish news for dates and times of services. Coffee is available every Sunday in the church Genner rooms at around 10.30 am  so come and have a chat, get to know  members of the congregation and find out what  is going on.
Our Vicar Lionel and Youth and Families Minister David are always ready to help so feel free to get in touch.
