Who we are

Bewsborough is an active Church of England single parish benefice in rural Kent (sitting on the outskirts of Dover, and around 4.5 miles from the seafront, depending upon where you are standing in the Parish at the time!)

Although the Parish name of Bewsborough doesn't mean a great deal to those living in the Parish, it is the name of the ancient ‘hundred’ which included most of the original five parishes, and so has particular local significance.

There are 5 churches in the Parish:

St. Andrew, Shepherdswell St. Nicholas, Barfrestone St. Pancras, Coldred St Peter, Whitfield St. Peter & Paul, Eythorne & Elvington with Waldershare

Each of our worshipping communities actively serve their local villages and wider communities. And, whilst each church may have aspirations particular to their own circumstances, and is unique in its worship, the Parish as whole has a shared vision of mission with the local communities in which they are located.

We are very active in each of our local communities working alongside other agencies as well as running our own projects as an expression of the love of God in a practical way.

Much of our activity happens on a Sunday, but that's not all that goes on! We are involved in Messy Church, coffee mornings, local outreach and there are many opportunities for fellowship, Bible study, prayer and friendship. As a Parish we understand that at heart, the Gospel is a message of relationship, relationship with God, and relationships with one another; and so we continually look for ways to reach out and meet with our local communities.

Our teaching is grounded in the Bible; we love liturgy, the sacraments and music in our worship. It is our aim that all we do is genuinely relevant to the time we are in now, and ensure that faith is offered and presented as something alive and relevant today; and that anyone who comes along will quickly feel part of a caring family and encounter something of the transforming love of Jesus Christ in our midst.

Music of the Day

I'm pressing on the upward way


I’m pressing on the upward way,
New heights I’m gaining every day;
Still praying as I’m onward bound,
“Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.” ...

Leader Bio:
It is an absolute joy and a privilege to be the Priest in Charge of the Bewsborough Parish.

I was ordained in 2017, in the Canterbury Diocese. Before responding to God's call to ministry I managed the UK and European Call Centres (a 20+ year career) for a premium audio brand and enjoyed building teams that had a community feel within them.

I am married to Ruth, have 2 wonderful children and 2 rather wayward dogs. I am a passionate cyclist, although don't get out and about as much as I would like which is in part due to the massive hills around Dover!

Whilst I have overall responsibility for the mission, ministry and resources of the churches, I am blessed to be able to share that responsibility and the joys of ministry with others in the team.   Edit

St Peter's Church Historical Photos

The power of Christian prayer Help my unbelief
Dear God, help my unbelief. When I'm in pain, I forget that you care about me. I forget that you have helped me through my trials. I forget that you hold me in your arms to keep me safe. I forget that you are feeling my pain with me. I forget that you love me, I forget that I am important to you. Show me your presence - let me feel your enveloping love. Heal my hurting soul. Thank you for staying with me even in my unbelief.
