Why not visit our churchyard and admire our beautiful trees?  The churchyard is open between
10am and 4pm every day.


In September 2020 Faversham Rotary Club donated 1,000 crocus bulbs to the church. These had originally been obtained to promote awareness of the campaign to eradicate polio through vaccination, but COVID-19 and the lockdowns meant they couldn't be used as originally planned.

They were planted in St Mary of Charity's churchyard (around the railings) and looked 'bloomin' lovely in spring (sorry, couldn't resist!)

Thank you, Faversham Rotary Club for your generous gift.




St Mary of Charity is an Inclusive Church.

Inclusive Church is a Christian organisation with the aim of advocating for the full inclusion of all people in Christian churches.  It seeks "to raise awareness about the ways that people feel excluded by the church".  It unites Christians around this statement of belief:

"We believe in inclusive Church - church which does not discriminate, on any level, on grounds of economic power, gender, mental health, physical ability, race or sexuality.  We believe in Church which welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ; which is scripturally faithful; which seeks to proclaim the Gospel afresh for each generation; and which, in the power of the Holy Spirit, allows all people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Jesus Christ."

The Church offers this prayer for all those affected by the spread of Coronavirus: 

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.

 Tour Guides: please check with the Parish Administrator if you will be bringing a large group to the church.  Please try to ensure your group closes the glass doors behind you when you enter and leave. 

It gets very cold in the church
(and in sunny weather birds sometimes
fly into the church)!
