Sharing God's Love
Welcome to the web site for Marden Parish Church in the heart of Kent.
WE ARE PLEASED TO MAKE THE FOLLOWING ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE BISHOP'S OFFICE:
"We are pleased to announce that The Reverend Nicky Harvey, currently Assistant Curate at St. Mary's Hadlow, Kent, and on secondment to the Benefice of Mereworth, Wateringbury and West Peckham, Kent, has been appointed to the post of Vicar of Marden. This appointment is subject to a DBS clearance. The licensing occasion will be held on 13th October and will comply with government guidelines for social distancing restrictions at the time"
Marden Church is open on Sunday mornings and is providing a Service of Morning Prayer at 10.30am until further notice. The Church is also open for private prayer on Tuesday and Thursday between the hours of 10am-12 noon.
The current advice from the Church of England and Canterbury Diocese on the use of face coverings is as follows:
With effect from 8th August it becomes mandatory for face coverings to be worn by all those attending a place of worship, including ministers, worshippers, staff, volunteers, contractors and visitors, where there may be other people present; remembering that they are mainly intended to protect other people, not the wearer, from coronavirus COVID-19 and that they are not a replacement for physical distancing and regular hand washing. Please remember to bring your face covering with you when you come to the church for a service or for private prayer.
Please read our Church Wardens' letter here to find out more about the service and times of private prayer in the church during the week:
St. Michael & All Angels, at the heart of Marden village,
part of the Weald Deanery, and in the Canterbury
Diocese in the Church of England.
