St Mary’s and Christ Church are part of a local grouping of Anglican churches, known as the Weald Deanery. Together we belong to the Diocese of Canterbury.

Wherever possible we support each other, particularly where we can do something better together than on our own. The Weald Family Hub is an initiative of the local churches in the Weald, supporting young people and families struggling with mental ill health. The Weald School of Theology provides high quality theology for the local church via a partnership with the St Paul’s Theological Institute, based in London. In the future we are looking forward to launching the Weald Greenhouse, supporting the local church to develop new communities for those who would love to find out more about God, but don’t find Sunday church helpful.
