Welcome to the website of the United Benefice of Gravesend Holy Family with St Margaret Ifield!

The Benefice comprises two Church of England parishes, each with its own Church building. They serve the areas of Christianfields, King’s Farm and Singlewell, together with the hamlet of Ifield.

Both have small, friendly congregations who would be delighted to welcome you, whether you are a visitor to Gravesend or a local resident looking for a Church to join.  We hope and pray that you encounter God’s love among us.

Please read on to find out more about us and what is going on.

Special joint services and events take place from time to time, notably at Harvest, Remembrance tide, Christmas, Holy week and Easter: full details will appear on the notice sheet.

The Benefice is part of the East Gravesend group of Anglican Churches, along with St Aidan’s (vicar, Rev Lusa Nsenga Ngoy) and Christ Church Milton (vicar, Rev Sue Brewer). Wherever possible we share ministry and mission. In 2015 we welcomed our first joint curate, Rev Karen Seggie.

Tuesdays, 8am Morning Prayer at St Aidan’s

Wednesdays, 5.15pm evening Prayer at Christ church

Thursdays, 8.30am, Morning prayer at Holy Family

Fridays, 5.15pm, Evening Prayer at Holy Family

Saturdays, 8am Holy Communion at Christ Church.
