Welcome to the parish of Kingsdown and Creekside encompassing the villages of Teynham. Lynsted with Kingsdown, Norton, Oare and Luddenham, Newnham, Doddington and Wychling. We are 7 distinctive parish churches, Messy Church and Breakthrough (a modern informal service with worship band) working together to see God’s Kingdom grow.
We recognise Jesus as the centre of all we are, the importance of our relationships with God and each other as human beings and Jesus’ call of us to his mission.
Do come in and look around, but even more so we look forward to seeing you at one of our worship services or other events.
