Faversham is a town with a long and colourful history. Its Christian origins go back over 1,000 years and much of this is reflected in the parish church of St Mary of Charity

Welcome to the parish church of Mary of Charity. The church is a diverse community with a lively congregation who participate in traditional and contemporary worship.

A significant number of people are engaged in home groups and social gatherings both spiritual and social, including children and young people.

Others care for our significant Grade I listed building and promote mission through heritage and tourism.

We invite you to allow time to connect with the history and spirituality that speaks of engagement with God both in the past and present.

Our aim is to promote the church as a sacred place at the heart of the community accessible to as many people as possible.

Visitors to the church can be assured of a friendly welcome, whether exploring the treasure of its history, wishing to take part in one of our variety of services or seeking a quiet place for private prayer.

It is our aim that St Mary of Charity is not only a reminder of the past, but is a vital part of the modern community.

Our vision is to encourage diversity of opportunity for Christian worship and broaden access and use of the church by offering a range of activities.
