Community Bread Basket

We are open again! Join us between 9.30am and 11.30am for a cafe style breakfast on Saturday 26 November in Plaxtol Parish Church. There will be a collection for the Chatham Foodbank. Boxes are placed in both our churches, normally over the fourth weekend of each month, for donations of food and toiletries, to coincide with our Community Bread Basket event.

Bethlehem Live!

We celebrate the birth of Jesus by processing down the Street in Plaxtol. This is a family event, starting at 3.15pm on Saturday 17 December. Wrap up warm, as this takes place outside.

Carols and Sketches at the Rifleman

This informal celebration of Christmas takes place outside the Kentish Rifleman in Roughway Lane, starting at 5.00pm on Tuesday 21 December. Wear plenty of clothes, as this takes place outside

Churchyard working party

Our churchyard is a haven of peace but it does need work to keep it looking good. We meet twice a year to cut back grass, weeds, shrubs and hedges. If you would like to help, do come to the churchyard when we have our next session in the Spring, for a morning of clearing vegetation. Bring your own tools – secateurs, shears, strimmers etc – and protective clothing. With luck it will be reasonable weather.
Coffee, tea and soft drinks and a cake or two will be available, to keep our spirits up.

Mums Ahoy!

A time for coffee hospitality and mutual support…..and perhaps even singing, music making, discussion….for Mums, Dads and carers and pre-school children. We will meet normally each month in Plaxtol  Church on the fourth Thursday of each month at 9.30am. Note that because of the Coronavirus pandemic, meetings of the Mums Ahoy! group have been suspended from March 2020 until further notice.

The Rector writes: “We still want to offer hospitality to any who might appreciate the chance to have a nice cup of coffee made for them……..We are not offering coffee for a chance to ram the Bible down your throat! We’re looking to serve this section of our community as a gentle expression of our faith and God’s love for all.”
