Welcome to Chevening Church

Church Logo

We are a friendly church that welcomes new people.  There is something for everyone at our pretty church on The Pilgrim's Way. The talks are biblical, brief and engaging. Our congregation is made up of both young and old and there is an active social life linked to the church. You would be most welcome to join us.

You can find us on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/cheveningchurch and on Instagram at 'cheveningstbotolphs'

Anyone with any safeguarding concerns should in the first instance contact our Parish Safeguarding Officer, Donna Hill

An important notice from the Diocese of Rochester

We are committed to making our church a safe space for all.

Churches across the Diocese of Rochester are currently undertaking a comprehensive safeguarding review to establish that all known past cases of concern relating to church abuse have been considered and dealt with appropriately.

If you are concerned about something you have experienced in a church, now or in the past, or you are worried about another person - perhaps a vulnerable adult or a child - there are people you can talk to and you will be taken seriously.

Anyone who needs to come forward with information or make any disclosures regarding church related abuse are encouraged to make direct contact with the Diocese of Rochester's Safeguarding team on: 01634 560000 or visit:

www.rochester.anglican.org/safeguarding/ 

Recognising that this may not feel safe for those with a lived experience of abuse from within the church, a dedicated telephone helpline, operated independently from the church, by the NSPCC, is available.

Calls can be made free on 0800 80 20 20.

Thank you.
