Rev Chris van Straaten

Welcome to St. Peter and St. Paul's Church, the Parish of Aylesford and Eccles in Kent. As a church we are a mix of friendly people from different backgrounds but united in wanting to grow in the Christian faith. We question our faith, learn from each other and enjoy being together. We are a church at the heart of the Aylesford community , so we plan events which will make more use of the Church and also enables people to value the Church and facilities whatever their beliefs. Best wishes to you all

Chris van Straaten

Our Vicar Chris, is sadly leaving Aylesford in February and moving to Hull to take on two small Parishes. We wish him well on his next journey. His last Sunday will be 14th February.
