Welcome to the website of St Mary’s in Great Chart and St Francis South Ashford. We are one Church Area with two congregations meeting in two different locations across our area.

We are part of the Ashford Town Team Ministry and share in the ministry across the town with all the other Anglican Churches. Our Ministry area is located on the south-western side of Ashford. We cover the ancient village of Great Chart and the South Ashford Estates of Brookfield and Stanhope. We look to challenge our community with the love of Christ, and believe that we have a significant role to play as the community grows and changes over the coming years.

St Mary’s Great Chart meets at 10am every Sunday morning in the parish church in Great Chart.

St Francis South Ashford meets on Tuesdays (1st and 3rd) at 12noon. If you would like to find out more click on Visit Us

We would love to welcome you to our churches for worship.

Great Chart church is a picturesque church for baptisms, weddings and funerals and we would be happy to discuss this further if you are interested. Please contact the church office (office@stmarysgreatchart.org or 01233 620371) to find out more.

Our team is led by Rev Cathie Aldis-Saunders who can be contacted via the church office or cathie.aldis@stmarysgreatchart.org
