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."

Geoffrey Cantuar

 

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.

WHAT'S ON

Next Sunday,1St August, our service at 09.30 is Morning Prayer led by Paul and Maureen Burnham, and in the afternoon, to conclude our weekend of community activities and fun, Rev'd Ravi Holy will celebrate a service for all pets and their owners at 3pm.  See left for details.  We're still feeling our way with the lifting of Covid restrictions, but you'll find plenty of space for social distancing and we would prefer you to bring a mask and sanitise your hands on arrival.  But at least we are now singing!  We hope you can join us on what we hope will be another lovely day.
