Welcome to Boxley - Detling - Grove Green Churches








              Revd. Paul Kite                        Capt.Graham Bibby

    The Church of England communities in Boxley, Detling and Grove Green, along with Hollingbourne,Thurnham and Hucking, are members of the "Pilgrims Way Churches".

    They are led by the Revd. Paul Kite with Team Missioner, Capt. Graham Bibby of the Church Army working closely with him.

    Paul resides with his wife Karen and family at the Hollingbourne vicarage, whilst Graham has a particular focus on the Grove Green area. This is where he and his wife Janette and family live in the Boxley Parish vicarage, close to St. John's C of E Primary School. This also means that he is handily placed to carry out his work within the new housing developments in the Sutton Road area of Maidstone.

    Our services fulfill the needs of those who prefer a traditional service, whilst including less formal services. We have Sunday schools at Boxley and Grove Green and in addition a "Messy Church" takes place at St. John's School in Grove Green, where our Sunday services take place.

    Boxley has a new Churchwarden:

    Jackie Saunders has recently been appointed as Churchwarden at Boxley and Grove Green Churches. Jackie who is also Chair of the Friends of Boxley Church has a long and distinguished association with the Church and her skills and enthusiasm will be well received by the congregation. 



    After years of dedicated service April 2019 saw Les Ellis step down from his role as one of our Church Wardens. He was delighted when Gill Munson was appointed in his place. Gill has, like Jackie a long association with Boxley Church and has been and remains very active in various fund raising events; whose purpose is to preserve the integrity of Boxley Church and its role in the local community.
