Church Services

Our Church buildings that are open for Private Prayer:

Newnham: daily        Doddington: Sundays 10-4.    Teynham: Saturdays 10-4      

SOME OF OUR CHURCHES are re-opening for PUBLIC WORSHIP SERVICES and you  will find them listed below. In accordance with current regulations we ask that you maintain 2m Social Distancing, wear a face covering and use the hand sanitiser provided. At present Congregational singing is not permitted but we will enjoy listening to hymns being sung for us. For Funerals the maximum permitted attendance is 30. From 8th March the maximum numbers permitted for weddings is 6, but that changes to 15 from 12th April and 30 from 17th May (if the situation allows the planned move through the Stages of opening up).

However, the current advice is that if you are clinically vulnerable you stay at home and join in our virtual services.


We are delighted to announce that Caroline Turvey will be joining the Benefice as an Ordained Curate in July this year. Caroline is at present, the lay Children's and Families minister at Goudhurst. Watch the video of a conversation between Caroline and Steve here.

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.
