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.
The Bishop of Dover has given permission for St Mary's, Sellindge, to be designated the FIRST "Festival Church" in the Canterbury Diocese.
Read what this means as part of our vision for the future of St Mary's and the community of Sellindge here.
Currently, the churches in Brabourne, Monks Horton, Stowting and Smeeth are open in the daytime as a quiet space to reflect and pray.
There will be measures in place to follow current guidance and capacity is unfortunately limited. Please wear a face covering.

On Monday mornings there is gathering in the Knatchbull Chapel in Mersham Church for Morning Prayer at 9:15am to which all are invited. This is live-streamed as Morning Prayer on our Facebook page, but the faces of those present are not shown (other than the leader). Please wear a face covering if attending.
