Friends of Kent Churches

The north aisle at Holy Cross church was added to the original building sometime in the 19 th century. It is probable that, since it was built, it had not been renovated in any way – as we soon realised when water dripped through whenever there was a heavy shower of rain. With thanks to a grant of £3000 from the charity Friends of Kent Churches, the building is now watertight once again. The north aisle roof has been stripped and all batons and slates replaced.

The Friends of Kent Churches was founded to promote enthusiasm in churches of historic interest or architectural importance in the county and to give financial aid to their preservation.

By cycling, walking or running around Kent churches you can raise money which is divided equally between the Friends of Kent Churches and the church or chapel of your own choice. There are over 800 churches and chapels which participate. All of them are open and most provide refreshments as you ‘clock in’. In a group or a family, plan a route – how many churches is it possible to visit within a limited time? And then enjoy the ride!

This event takes place every second Saturday in September and if you would like to know more you can find information on the table in Holy Cross Church usually from August onwards.
