The Parish Church of St Mary and St Eanswythe


The Church of St Mary & St Eanswythe, with St Saviour Folkestone, exists to make Jesus Christ known in Folkestone through its worship, its fellowship and its mission. It looks to encourage its members, and the people of the community of which it is a part, to realise their full potential as children of God.

First Day Covers

We have a collection of exclusive first day covers in numbered limited editions for sale with all proceeds going to support the parish. Please click here for further details and an order form.



With great regret we have decided to close the church for the duration of Tier 4 restrictions, with no public worship or visiting. Although we are allowed to be open we feel that it would not be responsible to keep the church open when the risk of transmission is so high. Morning Prayer and Eucharist services will be live streamed on our Facebook Page. Sunday sermons will be available on our Sermons and Services page as well as our Dial-a-Sermon service on 01303 768111. 

Creative Folkestone Carol Service
Recorded live in the church and available to watch from 18.00 on Friday 18th December on our Facebook page (link at bottom of the page) or on YouTube.


You can now hear the most recent Sunday sermon by dialling 01303 768111 in addition to listening through our Sermons and Services page. Please pass the number to anyone you know who might like to hear the sermon but is not able to do so online.
Local phone rates apply.
