    There are three churches in this large shared parish.  These are  St Mary & All Saints church in Boxley, St Martin’s church in Detling and St John’s church in Grove Green.  St Mary’s and St Martin’s churches have a long history stretching back hundreds of years while St John’s church is around 30 years old.

    We value and enjoy the history of our old church buildings which tell us such rich stories of times past; of the people who helped to build them, and the many people who’ve worshipped here through the centuries, whose children have been christened here, the loving couples who’ve come to be married here, and those who’ve made their last journey here too.

    St John’s church is young, set within Grove Green with worship taking place in the local Church primary school.

    But our churches are really about people: people growing together in the love of God, sharing hopes and dreams, responding to God’s call to share his love wherever we are, adding our stories to those of others who’ve worshipped in these places before us.

    I’m the parish priest for this Benefice and, once you’ve journeyed through this website, I hope very much that you’ll want to come and meet us, to worship God in these churches, and bring your stories to share too.
