Our Sunday Morning services start at 10.30 am and finish around 11.45 am when we have tea/coffee in the church hall at the back of the church.


From 12 noon to 1.30 pm every Monday in term time we run a Lunch Club for the over 55s in partnership with King’s Church. This is held at King’s Church on School Lane and costs 5.00 for a three course meal. Lifts can be provided to and from the church.


Catch Up, our regular group for Parents and Carers of pre-school children, runs in the church hall at the back of the church every Tuesday morning in term-time. We begin around 9.00 am and finish at 11.00 am and each session costs 1.00. New children are welcome.

On Tuesday afternoon there is a homegroup meeting in West Kingsdown from 2.00 to 3.00 pm; two Tuesdays each month.


Every Wednesday from 9.30 to 10.30 am there is a Zumba session in the church for the over 60s (though nobody younger will be turned away!). The sessions are led by a qualified Zumba trainer.

Other events

Each year we run various events to help church members to grow in their faith, to invite friends to join us for a service, or a special event, or to have fun fundraising. Recent events include:

  • Christianity Explained - a six week course giving a basic introduction to Christian beliefs using Mark’s Gospel. In other years we have run Alpha courses.
  • Lent Course - a six week course immediately before Easter, exploring the Easter story through a variety of approaches
  • Quiet mornings - an opportunity to spend time in a beautiful local garden in quiet contemplation of a passage of scripture
  • Murder Mystery evening - all in the care of a local detective, Noah Mystam, and all safely solved by the end of the evening.
  • Drama event - with Oddments Christian Theatre Group
  • Harvest Service - usually the last week in September
  • Back to Church Sunday - a special service in September, inviting people who have been to church in the past to join us in an informal service.
  • Away Day - once a year in the Spring we take the church to Otford Manor, a local conference centre in the hills south of West Kingsdown. The day consists of Bible teaching, a walk in the hills (weather permitting) and an opportunity to share fellowship over lunch.

Churches Together events

Every year we are also involved with the other three churches in the village for special events: Ascension Day service, walk of witness, and Christian Aid quiz event.

Community activities

In addition to our church activities our church hall and atrium provide space for local groups and are available for one-off events.
