Welcome to

We are a community hub serving the local community of Temple Hill and Dartford.


 

It is with great sadness that we hear the news of the death of 
His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh.
Our sincere condolences to Her Majesty The Queen and other members of the Royal Family.


Both St Edmund's & St Alban's will be open for quiet prayer and reflection with the opportunity for a candle to be lit:
Saturday 17th April - 11am to 12 midday.

May we invite you to join us in remembering His Royal Highness in prayer with these words:
Blessed Jesus,
Lord of Lords and King of Kings,
we give you thanks
for the life of Philip, Duke of Edinburgh .
for the grace and mercy
he received from you,
for his faithful love and support
of Her Majesty, The Queen,
and his service to this nation
at home and abroad.
Enfold him in your everlasting arms
grant him rest
and raise him up at the last
in the company of the saints in light. Amen


We remember, too, the Royal Family in their bereavement.
O God, our sovereign and shepherd,
who brought again your Son, Jesus Christ,
from the valley of death,
comfort, we pray,
The Queen and all the Royal Family
with your protecting presence.
Fill them with your Holy Spirit;
and with your heavenly peace;
and bring them at the last
to your everlasting kingdom;
through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen

St Edmund's Church Living Well offers a variety of health-related services which are available to the local community of Temple Hill & Dartford.

 

ACCESS TO OUR CHURCH IS VIA THE MEMORIAL GARDEN DOOR.
CLEAR GUIDANCE IS IN PLACE CONCERNING NUMBERS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING. PLEASE DO CALL FOR MORE INFORMATION.

As you may know we have sadly had to make the hard decision, given the huge rise in Covid cases in our parishes, that for the time being we will revert to Zoom worship and fellowship each Sunday morning. This may be a relief to some and a disappointment to others but we must do what we know to be safe and in the best interest of our congregations and communities.

Please rest assured if numbers indicate a reduction to the point where we can gather safely, we will change our plans accordingly and let you know.

Our Churches will be open for private prayer - St Edmund's will be open on Thursday mornings beginning on January 7th and a regular time to open St Alban's will be confirmed in due course.
