Corona Virus Update

Back in March and ahead of the governments decision to severely curtail all social interaction by way of “lockdown,” the leadership and trustees of Staplehurst Free Church made the difficult decision to suspend all services and activities in the church building with immediate effect. This action was only taken after much prayer and thought but with an overriding desire to protect all in our community. Since this time our leadership have continued to monitor the situation and are keeping under prayerful review the future re-opening of the church building. However, along with most other churches the current view is that it will be some time before we can fully re-open.

Currently our leadership team and trustees are reviewing the government guidance, as well as the wishes and safety of our congregation and community. Risk assessments are being conducted for different activities. This may make it possible for a few activities to restart in limited way – although they will out of necessity, operate in different ways to before Covid-19. In particular the church is mindful of the need to ensure that social distancing is maintained, which unfortunately will have the effect of curtailing the numbers able to attend any such activity.  Other suitable measures necessary to reduce the risk of spreading Covid-19 are also being put in place.

In the meantime we are continuing with our online services which does not have any restrictions on numbers! If you would like to join us for our weekly service via YouTube, please use the contact detailed above to receive the weekly link half an hour before the start of the service.

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``.
