Vicar: Revd Ruth Peet   Lay Reader: Peter Smith
I was delighted to become the Vicar of St. Peter and St. Paul's in February 2019. I don't know where the first 3 years have gone, but it has been wonderful making a home here and getting to know everyone. Covid-19 has thrown us into the unknown, with much anxiety and sadness around, but we've found different and better ways of being a church. More than anything else, we've seen clearly that the church is not the building (glorious though our building is), and so I look forward to building on this experience, and to finding more and more opportunities to express the love, grace and mercy of God, inside and outside the church building, in ways that will really make a difference for people in our parish communities.

Churchwarden: Aline Ongley   Churchwarden: Ian Packer
I have lived in Eccles for just over 20 years and became a member of the Church in Aylesford soon after moving in. However, I have become a more active member since my retirement as a nurse in May 2010. I am currently one of two churchwardens and have been so for nearly 3 years. It is a great privilege to be able to offer my services in this way and certainly keeps me occupied. My deepest wish is for the church to have a meaningful presence in the community, and it is a thrill to be involved in such projects as the food bank which started last December. My faith inspires me to want to show the love of God to everyone around us in very practical ways. This is what I believe the teachings of Jesus show us and I sincerely hope that I am in a small way able to be a part of spreading the truth of God’s love for everyone.

Ex-Churchwarden ??: Alan Longmuir (aka ExT)    
I came to Aylesford Church in 1985 and felt at home straight away; people were so friendly and went out of their way to help in any way. I know that is still the case today. I have had the honour and pleasure of being a churchwarden and treasurer for a number of years, although this year I stood down as treasurer. As a Church we are part of the community and work with organisations in the village to all our benefit. There have been a few struggles over the last 2 years but we have been able to hold  a church service every week, sometimes by Zoom. We have a Church Centre - The Brassey Centre - which we hire out for parties, fitness classes and our own meetings. Recently we  set up a food bank there for all who are in need. As Ruth has made very clear the church is not just a building!
