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.

    Regular services continuing, with visiting priests. We currently have a vacancy for parish priest.  The Churchwardens, along with staff team (Reader Mrs Katharine Harris and ALM Mr Nick Henwood), are coordinating the continuing ministry of the churches until another parish priest is appointed.

    For particular church enquiries - please go to the page for the relevant church and use the link to e-mail the Churchwarden.

    Service pew sheet - please email notices or updates by the end of Thursday, before the Sunday on which the notice is wanted.
