Welcome to the website for the churches of Littlebourne, Ickham, Wickhambreaux and Stodmarsh.
We are a group of four churches close to Canterbury. As Church of England parish churches for our villages we are there for everyone. Whoever you are, you'll find a warm welcome at our services and activities.
Enquiries about baptisms, weddings or special services are always welcome, whether or not you already attend church. Home communions can be arranged upon request.
The Parish Priest is the Rev'd Chris Wilkinson - her contact details are below.
We are linked with the Bridge Benefice (a group of five neighbouring parishes).

The Reverend Canon Jonathan LLoyd has been appointed Priest-in-Charge for the two Benefices of Bridge and Littlebourne and we look forward to welcoming him in late March.
LOCAL FLOODING - All the villages in the Benefice are threatened by the rising floodwater.
Please keep those affected in your thoughts and prayers. The following prayer is offered :
we commit to you all who are affected by flooding and the severe weather.
We pray for those who are suffering through loss of their homes and everyday lives and remember
those whose livelihoods have been damaged.
We give thanks for the many people who have worked together to help one another.
We remember the physical hardships, stress and distress of all those working in difficult conditions
and ask your blessing on all support and emergency services.
Bless the work of all those who are caught up in this severe weather and its aftermath.
All this we ask through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
