Each Thursday morning there is a Holy Communion Service followed by a regular Bible Study Group and if there is a fifth Sunday in a month, the eight churches of the Cluster will come together to worship at a Benefice service.

We welcome young families and children and have a craft club every Eucharistic Sunday at the back of the church. We also have a small and enthusiastic choir that takes an active part in each Eucharistic service.

Lent groups are regularly held and are regarded as having a strong potential for growth. During the Christmas period as well as Midnight Mass and a service on Christmas Day.

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.
