WELCOME TO STAPLEHURST FREE CHURCH


Located in the heart of Staplehurst, we are a relaxed 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.

Verse of the Day

Current Themes!

Is the Bible still relevant today? Why not join us in person or online as we explore two different themes in our morning services, from the Bible and see if they are as applicable today as 2000+ years ago?
Family Service Series: You can(t) meet Jesus!

Are you someone others don’t want to introduce to their family and friends? Would it surprise you to know that this has happened through out the centuries? There are events in the Bible where others thought certain people should not meet Jesus! But Jesus disagreed! Want to discover more? Why not join us online or in person for our current series in family church?

Teaching Series: Choices!

Using the events of the Old Testament to chart not only how the Israelites used their freedom from slavery, but to see if in these post lockdown times we can learn lessons from their actions and mistakes.

Evening Service

Once a month on the last Sunday of the month at 6:30pm (but not in December!)

An opportunity to experience something different from our morning service style!

Our next evening worship service will be on Sunday 28th November when our guest speaker will be our former pastor Ryan Ahern. All are welcome!

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``.
