St Marys is in the Diocese of Rochester
The Church of England
This is now That was then Who, what, where and when

St Mary's Church,  sometimes dubbed 'Little Westminster' and said to be one of the finest churches in Kent, has stood as a place of regular worship and symbol of the Christian community in Stone since the 13th Century. It serves a parish that extends from the Thames to Watling Street and from Greenhithe village to the M25. 

The building, which is mentioned in many architectural and tour guides,  is a hidden surprise to the many visitors each year who come to delight in its quiet beauty from both near and far.  Known for centuries as the Lantern of Kent because of its position on the top of the hill overlooking the River Thames,  it was seen as a  sign of safe haven by sailors returning home.

It still stands as a lantern above the surrounding new development and can be seen from the Queen Elizabeth II bridge as one crosses the Thames into Kent.  Its importance as a constant feature in the landscape remains whilst the surrounding area changes.
