Welcome! We are the Darent Valley Benefice: one church community, three church buildings:
St Mary's Horton Kirby, St Margaret's Darenth and St John's Sutton-at-Hone
** Sunday Services **
This Sunday 20th June we meet for worship at 10am at St John's.
Due to ongoing restrictions and increasing numbers hoping to attend worship, our service venues for the following weeks are currently being discussed by the church leadership. Notice of arrangements for future Sundays will be made available as soon as possible.
If you would like to be added to the church mailing list in order to receive updates as they become available, do email Revd Emma who will gladly add you to the mailing list.
