We are very pleased and excited that we can now reveal the new Priest who will be moving into KingsHill and working hard to build the church there. He will be based at KingsHill and joins the team of Pat Dickin (based in Mereworth) and David Green (from West Malling).
Your local bishop has very exciting plans for growing the church in the local area, and the critical first step has been to find the right person to be the new priest for KingsHill.
