at St Mary's


Our usual programme of services in church has resumed and the times  of these are listed below.


. Please note that once again face coverings are a legal requirement in church (unless you have an exemption). Your face covering may be removed temporarily to sing, if you have a speaking part in the service, and of course to receive communion.

. Communion is received in both kinds simultaneously.

. Please use the hand sanitizer provided.

. Please respect the need of others for space.

. Whilst the encouragement is still to come to church and interact with other members, for those at home Holy Communion will be streamed to Facebook on the first Sunday of the month.

. The situation is ever changing. Please be prepared to change with it.

Private prayer

 On Wednesdays between 2 pm and 4 pm the church will be open and accessible should you wish to take the opportunity. Certain areas of the church will be cordoned off, although it should still be possible to sit down and to light a candle.  


Some services can still be followed in posts from St Mary’s via the Church’s Facebook page, “St Mary’s Church, Stone-next-Dartford,” where live broadcasts will be made available.
