800th Anniversary

Welcome to St Lawrence Church

Please note, our Project 800 building work is now underway. Church life continues but with services in a variety of venues while the main part of the church is temporarily closed.

We expect Project 800 to take around 6 months to complete. It will ensure that our building is fit for the ministry demands of the 21st Century, with a toilet extension added and various improvements made inside our medieval church (Project 800 Brochure).

Sunday 8:00am Holy Communion services: at St Peter’s Southborough
Sunday 11:00am services: in Bidborough School Hall, Spring Lane
Sunday 6.30pm services: at Deacon House, High Street, Bidborough
