PCC Covenant - St Mary’s Church, Chartham

Serving God

The PCC of St Mary’s, Chartham aims to seek the will of God for our church through prayer
and collaboration with our brothers and sisters in Christ. We are grateful for the opportunity
to use our time and talents for the benefit of our church and community. We recognise that
utilising Church funds, it is essential that our conduct is to the highest standards of integrity
to maintain trust and confidence.

Serving the church

We feel it is important to keep well informed about the views of our congregation, our wider
community and the issues that concern them. In seeking the opinion of others, we aim to
listen in an open, non-judgemental way.

We play a full and enthusiastic part in the life of our church, working towards the church’s
mission and vision, making informed decisions with the whole church family in mind and
forming a positive link with key areas of the church’s ministry.

We share a willingness to demonstrate leadership and commitment to our church, leading by
example to support our priests and lay readers so their efforts can be most productive.

Serving Each Other

We have respect and care for each other; listening and considering the words and ideas of
others on the PCC.

We share a commitment to prepare for, prioritise and attend meetings and a willingness to
play an active part in the PCC’s business, maintaining confidentiality.

We can discuss, debate and sometimes disagree openly in meetings, expressing ourselves as
clearly and honestly as possible so that we are certain others understand our point of view.
We commit to upholding the decisions of the PCC, to share a collective responsibility and to
play a role in communicating them positively to the wider church family.

Planning your Visit

A Warm Welcome 

The following information is specifically for those planning a visit, so that you know, beforehand, what to expect on a Sunday morning.

Where and When

We meet at St.Mary's (details below) for our Sunday Service starting at 10am. When you arrive, you should be greeted by someone on our Welcome Team.

We serve tea, coffee and biscuits afterward. It is a great way to meet people, or simply take time to find your bearings. All refreshments are free.

Plan your journey: 

Open Google Maps

Accessibility: There is wheelchair access, and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. Please let one of the Welcome Team know on your arrival and they will help you to get set up. There are disabled toilets in the main foyer.

Our Service

The main service begins at 10am with a warm welcome..
Visit our This Sunday page for more information

What about my kids?2020-06-26 15-01-11

Treasure Seekers (Sunday school) takes place during each of the 10am services except the Family Service on the first Sunday

Children stay with their parent or grown-up at the start of the service for the welcome, songs and notices. We really value worshipping God all together as a family. At the end of the notices someone will announce that it’s time for the younger members to go out to Treasure Seekers.  You will need to go with your children to their groups and register them as part of our child safety policy. 

The kids group activities vary depending on the age but usually there is a friendly welcome, bible stories, testimonies, praying, music, craft, drama, fun games and free play. Please pick your children up as soon as the service finishes.

Getting Connected


Small Groups

While Sundays are a great way to meet new people, it is often in smaller gatherings that you can really get to know someone. Being part of one of our small groups allows you to make new friends, share together and support each other. We have a variety of groups that meet throughout the week, some afternoons and some evenings. Check out Small Groups and see if there’s one that you could join, or we can put you in touch with a small group leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to their group.
