ROGATION RAMBLE OFF

We’re very sorry to say that this year’s much-delayed Rogation Ramble will not take place on Sunday 27th June after all. Various local concerns and official restrictions make it unwise to gather in what we anticipated would be a sizeable group. Our footpaths are still open, of course, so do keep walking – but not in large groups. For this year, at least!  Enjoy the summer.

Services during Lockdown

 

The church will be open for private prayer from 10.30 to 11.30 on Wednesdays.

A return to church is taking place, for those who feel safe and happy to meet with a restricted number in the church building. Masks and social distancing will apply and hand gel will be available.

If you would like a candle lit for anyone or anything, and do not want to come to the building, please contact

Revd. Ali Cooper and she will do it for you.

At this difficult time, please keep our Government and all Key Workers in your prayers.

A reminder to wear face coverings, 

and also that we are in Tier 4

'Our Vicar'

Following the retirement of The Revd Sue Diggory on 31 January 2021, The Bishop of Rochester announced that an interim role had been offered to The Rev'd Alison Cooper.

 

Reverend Alison Cooper was licensed as our interim Vicar on 3rd March 2021. Alison’s appointment in the parish is on the basis of four days a week including Sunday duties. She and her husband, Rod, live in Oakdale Lane in the village. Apart from Sunday, Alison is normally on duty on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. She can be contacted by phone (01732 669447/07747 682139) or email (alison8@talktalk.net)  and will usually respond the same day. 

 

Normally, Alison is very happy to visit or to welcome people to her home at Rosemary Cottage. However, because of the present restrictions due to the Covid virus, Alison is unable to visit people or to welcome them to her home, but is available either by telephone or email.

A warm welcome from Holy Trinity Church, Crockham Hill (within the Diocese of Rochester). We have a history of worship that goes back to 1842, and recently celebrated our 175th anniversary.

 

We are a 'middle of the road' Anglican church, with a determination to spread God's word more widely within our local community and beyond.

For a number of years up to March 2014, our Church was linked to SS Peter & Paul, Edenbridge, whose Vicar was our Priest-in-Charge. Although that connection has come to an end, we continue to work closely with Edenbridge Church, and also with Edenbridge Churches in Covenant.
