Located in the heart of Staplehurst, we are a welcoming and friendly community of Christians from varying backgrounds who are passionate about God.  Our desire is to enable everyone know Jesus  and grow in a personal relationship with Him.

Quiz February 24th 6pm



Every Sunday at 10.30am and once a month at 6.30pm
Our all age Family Church 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.


Staplehurst Free Church
Station Road, Staplehurst
Kent TN12 0QQ


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.


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``.
