St Peter & St Paul, Dymchurch

 

Situated in New Hall Close at the north end of Dymchurch village and between the historic Cinque Port towns of Hythe and New Romney, St Peter & St Paul Dymchurch is a small 12th century Norman church, dating from about 1150. It is built from the same Caen stone as Canterbury Cathedral filled in with Kentish ragstone.

SERVICES

All Sunday services commence at 10.30 am. 

Each Tuesday morning 10:30-12:30 there is a regular Bible Study Group.

If there is a fifth Sunday in a month, the 14 churches across the Benefice will come together to worship at a Benefice service.

We welcome young families and children. We also have a small choir that takes an active part in each service.

Lent groups are regularly held and are regarded as having a strong potential for growth. 

THE DAY OF SYN

Dymchurch is the home of the fictional smuggler known as Dr. Syn, Rector of the parish church. Every two years Dymchurch holds a pageant during the August bank holiday weekend called the Day of Syn. The village widely supports this and many dress up in period costumes. The event ends in an exciting battle on the beach between the smugglers and the revenue men.
