All Saints Church and
St Christopher's Church
Boughton Aluph, Kent
Lambeth Palace, London SE1, October 1952
"No-one driving along the road from Chilham to Ashford can fail to observe the massive tower of Boughton Aluph church standing as its eminence to the right of the road. The church has a most impressive exterior and a noble interior. It is a special treasure among all the lovely churches of Kent."
The introduction from a letter written by the then Archbishop of Canterbury (Geoffrey Fisher) in October 1952 in support of the appeal to raise funds to save this beautiful but war-damaged church from collapse.
As you can imagine, the church's income has plummeted recently with the cancellation of services and all our fundraising events, such that we are now struggling to make ends meet, especially with recent tree and roof work at St Christopher's and £11,000 to find to repair the organ at All Saints later this year! Please consider supporting the work of this church and/or the extremely costly business of preserving the fabric. See the links on the Friends and Support page (see above) or click here, or contact our treasurer on 01233 640357. Many thanks.
