Congregation in Church 

With great regret, public worship in church has had to be suspended from Thursday 5th November owing to the latest lockdown rules. Further information will be made available as soon as we have it.

Hopefully we will soon be able to resume worshipping together once more .


Private prayer

Churches have permission to open to individuals wanting to come inside for private prayer, as long as social distancing and hygiene precautions are taken. Once again on Sundays and 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.  


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

Further details are on our 'notices' page.


Under normal circumstances the programme of services in church is as follows.
