Welcome to the Stour Downs Parish.

Stour Downs

Stour Downs is a new parish created in 2018, serving the six rural communities of Brabourne, Mersham, Monk's Horton, Sellindge, Smeeth and Stowting.

We have six beautiful churches in an area of outstanding natural beauty offering a variety of types and times of worship across the month for all ages.

Please do come and try a style (and time) of worship that suits you- a friendly welcome awaits. See our monthly services page.

We have a lot of social, fundraising and community events across our villages. These can be found in the Diary and our What's On page.
