Hi! from the Parish of Fawkham and Hartley


A warm welcome to you from the Parish of Fawkham and Hartley. We are an Anglican parish within the Diocese of Rochester.

For over a thousand years, since the time of the Anglo-Saxons, our churches have served the villages of Fawkham and Hartley. Our ministry is to the whole community, so we seek to be welcoming, open and inclusive within a broad Anglican ethos.

Within our parish we have two historic churches, All Saints Hartley, and St. Mary’s Fawkham, and the modern Fawkham and Hartley Church Centre. Sunday by Sunday, worship services are held in all three locations. Each worship centre has its own style of service because people like to worship God in different ways and in varying settings. We hope that you will soon find a place in our church family wherever you feel at home in worshipping God.

We hope you will find the following notes helpful in choosing where to worship. However, nothing can beat personal experience, so why not try all three? You will find a friendly welcome awaiting you at whichever service you attend. As the worship patterns can be difficult to work out at first sight, we recommend that you follow this link to our services page which details the services being held throughout the parish.

All Saints Church








All Saints' Church
Church Road, Hartley

A service is held here at 9 a.m. every Sunday. On the first and third Sundays this is a communion service using the modern liturgy of Common Worship. On the second and fourth Sunday of every month there is a service of Morning Prayer using Common Worship. On the few months in the year when there is a fifth Sunday, we celebrate Holy Communion using the historic Book of Common Prayer.

All Saints Church is the place to come if you are looking for a good start to your Sunday. Each service has hymns and a sermon. The service finishes by 10.10 a.m. and you have the rest of the day before you.

We also hold a “said” mid-week communion service here on Wednesday mornings at 10.00 a.m.

St Mary's Church
Fawkham Valley Rd, Fawkham

A service is held here every Sunday evening at 5 p.m., except the 5th Sunday, which is Cafe Church in the Church Centre. They are generally in the tradition of the Book of Common Prayer.

On the first and second the service is Evening Prayer, according to the book of common prayer, on the third Sunday the service is Evening Prayer according to Common Worship and on the fourth Sunday there is Holy Communion according to the Book of Common Prayer

There are also morning services on the first and third Sundays of each month at 10.30 a.m. (Holy Communion according to the Book of Common Prayer on the first Sunday and Morning Prayer on the third).

St. Mary’s is the place to come if you are looking for the beauty and historic tradition of Anglican worship according to the Book of Common Prayer.

St Mary's Church








All Saints' Church Centre












Fawkham & Hartley Church Centre
Ash Road, Hartley

A service of Holy Communion using Common Worship is held here every second and fourth Sunday morning at 10.30 a.m. on the third Sunday of each month we hold our Family Service, and on the first Sunday we have Morning Worship.

On the few occasions during the year where there is a fifth Sunday, then we hold our Cafe Church service in the centre at 5.00pm. Cafe Church is church, but not as you know it. A more informal service and comes complete with tea, coffee and cakes!

The Church Centre is in the middle of Hartley and so it is within easy walking distance of most people. It has the advantage of having meeting rooms and a fully equipped kitchen.

It is the focus of our work with young people, and each Sunday morning there are Sunday Club classes for the different age groups. There are also toys available for pre-schoolers.

It is also popular with the elderly, on account of its easy access and the wide age-range of the congregation.

The services have a more informal feel than in our historic churches.

The Family Service is especially popular with our young families, many of whom have become part of our Church Family through the baptism of their children.
