Welcome to St Alphege Church
Whether you are old or young, living here or passing through, you will always find a warm welcome in our inclusive and family friendly church. We invite you to please come and worship God with us or use our church as a place for thought & reflection.
We are an Anglican church, one of five in the Whitstable Team Ministry. Our church family is
made up of all ages and we are always happy to see new faces. We come together to enjoy worship and fellowship and want to share God's love with all. St Alphege church is the focal
point of the High Street, you can step inside on any weekday morning for a quiet time of
prayer and peace, or just for a coffee and a chat.
Within our website you can find out all the information you need about our regular services, our
community based clubs and organisations, as well as pages on Marriages, Funerals & Baptisms.

Annual Church Meeting
Everyone is invited to the church ANNUAL MEETING, which will take place on Monday 27th March at 7.30pm in the Narthex. This is an opportunity for all members on the church Electoral Roll to nominate and vote for our Churchwardens and representatives to serve on the District Church Council (DCC), the Parochial Church Council (PCC), which includes all the Whitstable Team churches, and the Deanery Synod for Reculver Deanery.
There will be 4 DCC vacancies, 2 PCC vacancies and 2 Deanery Synod vacancies to be filled this time, as well as 2 Churchwarden posts. Anyone on the Electoral Roll can stand, so if you, or someone you know, would like to join the church council, you can complete a nomination form beforehand or at the meeting. Forms will be available in church, or ask me for one. It would be great to have some new members on the council.
The annual meeting is a very informal and friendly occasion and apart from the business of the meeting, also includes time to socialise over cheese and wine, so I do hope you will be able to come.
Also have a look at our church ANNUAL REPORT. I hope you enjoy reading about what’s been going on in the past year and having a look at all kinds of information about our church. There is also news about ongoing projects and activities for the coming year.
With best wishes,
