St Mary of Charity is a great escape for the noise of the town where the very fabric of the building ouzes peace. Take the time to sit here for a while and let pressures and worries fade away.

Popped over from King Henry IV at Canterbury Cathedral to see the church that has a dedication to King Stephen, but it was closed. Looked round the interesting graveyard instead.

Usually, open from 9am until 5pm, this is a an odd church because it is suitable for all ages. For the mature visitor, there is loads of history here, aside from the usual tower, stained glass, there are little gems everywhere if you look harder. Whilst for the young, the same can be said as this isn't just a place of worship, or of historic importance, it is also a genuine Pokemon Go Gym! Really.

A magnificent church with beautiful stained glass windows and an early 14th century painted column, and a very unusual crown spire. We went for the 10.30 sung Eucharist which was particularly moving in such a setting. The large flint church is set in an equally interesting graveyard. Also possibly the final resting place of King Stephen.

Very impressive architecture and internal decoration. The painted pillar was fascinating and clearly explained. The people were very friendly and helpful. Well worth a visit for up to an hour.

A huge church for a small town like Faversham, with large, wide transepts making the interior feel very open. Notable is the mediaeval painted pillar, the reputed tomb of King Stephen, some finely carved misericords, beautiful stained glass windows and the fascinating open spire.

What a wonderful church that has played an important role in Faversham's history. Sitting just slightly outside the hustle and bustle of town, St Mary of Charity is peaceful inside and out. The cemetery absolutely surrounds the church and it just made me want to know more about the people who lived here. Inside, the organ was playing, a lovely welcome! The stained glass windows are striking and beautiful. This place may have been important I'm the past, but it's still much loved by the people of Faversham today, with many taking a stroll through around or sitting and having their lunch in the tranquil setting. Definitely worth stopping in if visiting Faversham.

The biggest church in Faversham and well designed,pretty building,the spire of the church is one of the tallest in the country and is a landmark in the surrounding vicinity.I enjoyed both the interior and the exterior of the church.One end of the church was being renovated,when we visited.The church does not charge admission and has some very pretty stained glass windows.Well worth a visit.
