COVID-19 virus: There are a number of us who would be more than happy to help with shopping etc if anyone (whether a member of our Church community or not) is anxious about going out. Please simply contact the vicar (01622 891804) or one of the Church Wardens, (details on the website and parish magazines) if we can help in any way.

We are a group of four churches serving the villages of Headcorn, East Sutton, Chart Sutton & Sutton Valence in the Canterbury Diocese. You can find us between Maidstone and Ashford with the Suttons running along the stunning Greensand Way and Headcorn nestling in the very picturesque Weald of Kent.

Although each church has its own unique identity, we endeavour to support each other in all we do and we enjoy coming together for special events and services. We not only share a vicar but also the same Mission Statement “To know and make known the love of God in Jesus Christ” which we seek to put into practise in a variety of different ways.

We also take our responsibilities as custodians of our historic and pretty churches very seriously and we love to show them off to visitors. Both Headcorn & Sutton Valence are open every day throughout the year during daylight hours, while East Sutton and Chart Sutton are open to casual visitors on the first Saturday of the month from late spring until early autumn – however we are always willing to open up at other times by prior arrangement.

We hope that you will find this website helpful or please feel free to contact our vicar Rev’d Fiona Haskett at any time.
