Church Services

We have several different styles of service on offer across our two parishes, with services to hopefully suite all tastes and preferences and you are welcome to attend any time.

On a related note, St Katharine's Church, Knockholt is open to the public from about 10am to 4pm every day, and St Margaret's, Halstead from about 9am to 6pm. Times will vary depending on the time of year, and include Sundays when the churches are open for the same times around our services.
