St Aidan's is the Church of England parish church serving two large areas of housing, schools and shops: Westcourt and Riverview Park, Gravesend. The church was dedicated in 1964 but historically speaking, the area was part of the ancient parish of Chalk St Mary. We continue to bear witness to Christ in the community through sacrament, prayer and community engagement. You are very welcome.
Safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults is very important to us. See the 'About us' section for details of who to contact in the parish. Policies, advice and information from the Diocese of Rochester can be found in the 'Links' section.
St Aidan's will be opening for Holy Communion on Sunday 9th August 2020 at 10am. Capacity for this service has been reached but there are a few 'free' spaces for those who may come along without booking in. Please do telephone if at all possible on the number below. Once church is full the door will be closed and a sign clearly stating that we are full displayed. Do not enter if that is the case. There is a second service on Sundays at 11.30am and Wednesdays at 9.30am (from 12th August). Please book on 01474 352500. We cannot guarantee that there will be space. Thank you for your understanding.
Enter through the open set of doors and wash hands on entry and exit. Follow directions of the stewards and maintain social distancing at all times. It is very likely that such restrictions and measures will still be in place by the 9th August; any updates will appear here and on our Facebook page.
Risk assessments have been carried out in accordance with government guidance.
Requests for prayer can be made by email to the Vicar, Fr Michael: email@example.com
