You can't help but be awestruck by this historic building. To think of all the people throughout history who have worshiped here. We have visited several times now and will be returning often. We are hoping to attend the Communion this Sunday. It felt really wonderful to pray here. I really felt close to the Lord.

I first saw this church when my boyfriend and I cycled through from Sheerness. We stopped here for a brief rest stop and noticed that the neighbours had peacocks! Inside the church - we were so pleased to observe that the locals were selling their chutneys and jams for a few pence ( I got a Rhubard chutney for 60p)...... More

It's location and the stained glass windows. We visited the church as part of a circular walk from the ferry house inn.

I visit the church every July for the flower festival. I'm not a church goer, but this is a sweet Little church, which is cared for and about by it's wardens. Very peaceful and beautiful location.

Having read the reviews we undertook the journey to this beautiful church way out in the middle of nowhere. The grounds are maintained to a very high standard and when we entered into the chuch we were encaptured by its peace and tranquility. Whilst we were alone at first we were eventually joined by a Curate who was a source... More

It is a four mile drive down a narrow, windy road to get here, but it is well worth the journey. A fascinating old church, with a peacock in the front garden.

Dating from 12th century, this little church is well worth a visit if you are on the isle of Sheppey. A guide sheet or guidebook are available in the church for a donation.

You will find a history leaflet inside the church. The four mile drive down a narrow lane from the main Sheerness to Eastchurch road is well worth it. Have lunch at The Ferry House Inn whilst you are there. It's near the church.
