Welcome to our website. Our parish is part of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Southwark, and serves a widespread rural community in the Weald of Kent and neighbouring parts of East Sussex. We have strong relationships with other Christian communities in our area. If you are visiting this beautiful area we hope you will join us for Mass at one of our churches.
