Welcome to St Mary Kippington

Welcome to the Church of St Mary, Kippington!


Every church is unique in its own way. Do look at the history page for this church – built by a local benefactor, William Thompson, in 1880, with help from his sister. Each part of the building was carefully planned with a theme for each window illustrating Bible verses and characters. We open the doors every day of the year to enable you to visit.


But a church is far more than a building, just as a home is more than a house. It has to do with the church family who gather there, one that is constantly growing and changing.


We come from all ages, from the recently born to others in their nineties! We constantly look beyond ourselves to welcome visitors and new-comers.

And we constantly look to God to keep us and guide us as to how to live each day as followers of Jesus Christ, who gave his life to save us all. In the worship services we seek to be both traditional as well as contemporary, to be relevant to this day and age.


Welcome to our church’s website, and do feed back any comments to us that you may have.


Revd David Kitley, Vicar
