Rev. Chris van Straaten

Parish Vicar of Aylesford Church
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 keen, as well, to be a church at the heart of the community of Aylesford, 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
