CHURCH OPEN - WW1 START
Monday, 4 August 2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the day Britain entered one of the costliest conflicts in history – the First World War – with fighting continuing until the 11 November 1918, Armistice Day. The Church will be open on 4 August to provide an opportunity for quiet reflection.
Do have a read of the latest 'Vicar's Thoughts', dated 30 June 2014, about 'Extra-Ordinary Time' - accessed from the main menu on the left-hand side of this front page.
The Vicar will be holding a 5-week series of confirmation classes, to explore the basics of Christianity, leading up to a Confirmation Service on the evening of Sunday, 28 September 2014, at St Mary's Kippington. There will be a course for adults (5 - 6 pm) and a separate course for young people (secondary school age, or starting secondary school in September) (4 - 5 pm); starting Sunday, 24 August 2014. If you would like to find out more about this for yourself or your children, or you would just like to attend the course, please contact Revd. Martin.
RIDE & STRIDE
The annual 'Ride & Stride' in aid of Friends of Kent Churches will take place on Saturday, 13 September 2014. St Mary's Church will be open between 10am and 6pm. At this stage we are looking for someone who can take on the organisation of our Church's involvement; being a contact point, recruiting enough people to man the church and arranging to provide some orange squash and biscuits. If you can help, please contact Margaret Nicholas. Thank you.
