Fordcombe's village church


Welcome to Services at St Peter’s Church, Fordcombe

Services at St Peter’s are shared with our united benefice churches of St John the Baptist, Penshurst and Poundsbridge Chapel under the guidance and ministry of Reverend Tom Holme.

The schedule of services for the current month is published in the St Peter’s Parish Newsletter, a printed copy of which is delivered free to every home in Fordcombe Parish. The schedule on the Services This Month page has been updated to reflect:

  • Corrections following publication of the newsletter.
  • Services for special occasions, for example Easter, Christmas, Harvest, Remembrance Day which are in addition to or replace our regular services.

Please refer to our welcome page where any last minute change to the date, time and/or venue of the upcoming service will be clearly announced.

About our services provides additional information which we hope will explain what to expect when attending a service at St Peter’s.

Opening Time

St Peter’s is open at least 20 minutes before the start of each service. For special occasions we open 30 minutes before the start of service to ensure all are able to be seated.

The church bell sounds 10 minutes, and again at 5 minutes, before the commencement of each service.
