This website is no longer being updated. Our new Benefice website should be going live in July 2015.



Welcome to the website for the two churches of St Katharine, Knockholt & St Margaret, Halstead (in Sevenoaks, Kent)

Our aim through this website is to provide extensive up-to-date information on all that is happening across our joint Benefice and in our churches and villages of Badgers Mount, Halstead and Knockholt for our current parishioners.

Nevertheless, there is also a wealth of information focussed on giving an insight into the active work of the two churches for those interested in moving to the area, as well as those wishing to research into local history. We encourage you to visit the website regularly so that you can keep up to speed on all that is going on. Most importantly we hope you will find things of interest here, but if you should think of anything that you feel we ought to consider adding to the site, we are always appreciative to receive your feedback.

Queen's Diamond Jubilee Sermon 2012

Below is a (somewhat distant) video recording of John's sermon on the significance of faith during the Queen's sixty-year reign. More details from the Sermons & Articles section.

A surprising quote!

"If The Beatles get on the side of Christ, which they always were, and let people know that, then maybe the churches won't be full, but there will be a lot of Christians dancing in dance halls. Whatever they celebrate, God and Christ, I don't think it matters as long as they're aware of Him and His message." John Lennon
