Welcome to the Stour Downs Parish.
The Stour Downs parish was created in 2018, to serve the six rural communities of Brabourne, Mersham, Monks Horton, Sellindge, Smeeth and Stowting.
Until further notice, all services are postponed in Church of England churches and we are no longer permitted to keep our churches are open as a space for prayer, reflection and quiet. Please see the notice displayed in our churches, here.
This Sunday 31st May at the later time of 11:00am a PENTECOST service is live streamed from The Rectory to the Stour Downs Facebook Page , or you can phone into a conference call to hear the service by telephone- please see the instructions on the page called "Virtual Church" on the menu above, where you can also download a service sheet and find out how to join the VIRTUAL PARISH PICNIC via Zoom, which follows the service.
Rev Chris live streams Morning and Evening Prayer from The Rectory on Facebook Live on our Stour Downs Page at 9am and 6pm for Evening Prayer.
See the page called "Novena 2020" for prayer resources in the period between Ascension and Pentecost (22nd-30th May).
