The parish churches in and around Dartford Town Centre, including St Edmund's Church Temple Hill, meet regularly for worship, fellowship and an opportunity to see how they might work more effectively together, utilising and sharing their resources among each other.
The Clergy of the deanery meet in chapter, share in fellowship, take part in an annual residential outside of their respective parishes, and offer each other support in their work as parish priests. Each parish elects two representatives to attend the deanery synod of laity and clergy who meet three od four times a year and plan and discuss ways of working more effectively together. This will include moments of prayer and worship, hospitality and organising events and trips for all the parishes within the deanery.
Do please pray for our two representatives Reader Andrew Carr & Sharon Earl.
