Littlebourne Benefice

    Littlebourne      Ickham    Wickhambreaux    Stodmarsh

    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. 

    A Confirmation course runs regularly - usually beginning in early summer. Participants can choose whether to proceed to confirmation or not - but are welcome to take part in the course. Contact Chris for more details.


    The Parish Priest is the Rev'd Chris Wilkinson.  


    Rev'd Chris retires at the end of July.  Her last service is on 31st July at 10.00am at Littlebourne  church and everyone is welcome. (this is the only service in the benefice that day). 
    The service will be followed by a presentation. Please join us to wish Chris and Peter a happy retirement.

    The Churchwardens together with the staff team, Reader Mrs Katharine Harris and ALM Mr Nick Henwood, will coordinate the continuing ministry of the churches during the vacancy for a parish priest.

    Check out the 'What's On' page to find the latest details of events or special services. 
    It's updated regularly so that you can always find out what's happening.
