I’m new

Welcome sign

The seven parish churches of the Kent Downs & Malling Team are made up of a thriving, growing, and diverse group of Christians of all ages who make their home in and around the seven communities of Addington, Birling, Leybourne, Offham, Ryarsh, Trottiscliffe and West Malling.

We want to be a genuine family of Christian believers, committed to discipleship and eager to share the truth and relevance of the Bible as we live out its message in authentic Christian lifestyles; representing and proclaiming the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ to the world around us.

There’s an old Latin expression that is used in the Church of England sometimes that translates roughly as ‘we are as we worship’. In other words, you will find out what we’re like and what we believe by coming along to worship with us. We’d love you to join us for worship on Sunday mornings in any one of the churches where we meet.

Going somewhere new is not always the easiest thing to do so we hope this website helps you learn more about us, and makes that first visit easier. Please take a look around to get an idea of what takes place on Sundays and throughout the week for people of all ages. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us and ask.
