Regular Activities

Unfortunately to comply with current government restrictions all our regular activities have been suspended. Although please see our Free Bees page (under Activities) for an exciting new support group. Please continue to watch this space for further updates for all other activities! Our leadership are continuing to monitor the situation and are keeping under prayerful review the future re-opening of all other activities. Unfortunately along with most other churches the current view is that it will be some time before we can fully re-open.

In line with government guidance, before starting any activity we have and will continue to conduct the relevant risk assessments, and have ensured appropriate  measures to keep us Covid19 secure have been put in place.

Jesus is the Light of the World

 

This year we were unable to hold our annual Light Party so decided to do something different! Continuing our theme of Light we joined the Staplehurst Halloween trail and offered a homemade hot soup, drinks, cakes and a craft activity based on lighthouses, for children to take home to do.

If you would like to see our lighthouse and amazing variety of carved pumpkins please take a look at our photo gallery by clicking here or at our video for  31st October on our YouTube channel which you can access by clicking here

 

We will remember them

 

In this year of Covid19, complicated by a second lockdown  which prevented any Remembrance Day parades taking place, the amazing creative team at SFC  came up with another way to show our village’s support for all those who have died in the two World Wars  and other conflicts.

# Purple Lights UK

November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness month. As a church we have been touched by pancreatic cancer and the speed with which it kills so soon after diagnosis. Not for nothing is it known as the “silent killer”. So in memory of two much loved former members of the church Stan Twort (who was one of our founder members) and Dr. Nigel Minett (one of our deacons and a popular local GP) we have participated in Pancreatic Cancer UK’s #PurpleLights campaign. If you would like to learn more about their work and the symptoms of pancreatic cancer to look out for please click here.

Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month: November


SERVICE TIMES

Every Sunday at 10.30am and 6.30pm
Our all age family service is on the 1st Sunday morning of the month. On other Sundays our youngsters join us for worship at the beginning of the service and then attend age appropriate sessions, whilst the adults further explore God's Word together.



WHERE WE MEET

Staplehurst Free Church
Station Road, Staplehurst
Kent TN12 0QQ



HOW DO I GET THERE?

We are on the A229 - coming from Maidstone we are just over the station bridge and then 200 yards on the left.
If you are coming from the Cranbrook direction, we are on your right about 400 yards after the traffic lights at the crossroads. The church itself is set back from the road with car parking available in front of the church but this can make us easy to miss! To help find us at night look out for the red reflective triangles on either side of the gateposts.



WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

Our church has a 'come as you are' atmosphere. The church and the Lord are more interested in you than in what you wear! The Bible says ``People look on the outward appearance but the Lord looks on the heart``.
