Parish Pilgrimage: please complete the survey, available here, if you are interested.


Please don’t push the inner church doors at St Peter’s from the parish room side, as they are now one-way doors. We have had to make this change because of our increasing fears that a child could be seriously hurt if the swing doors trap their fingers or strike them on the rebound. To avoid this, we have put ‘PULL’ handles on the doors, and a bar across the top on the altar side so they only open back into the parish room. The work is not quite finished: we are considering whether we also need to install ‘damper’ springs at the top, but we are waiting to see how they settle down.

Unfortunately, Good Shepherd Church, Harrietsham, is not suited to wheelchair access, and we recommend wheelchair users join us for services at St Peter’s Church, Bearsted, which is fully accessible.
