We need a new Parish Administrator! Please scroll down for details
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.
The church is open for visiting between 11.00 and 13.00 Tuesdays to Saturdays, and our regular Communion services are at 10.30 on Sundays and Thursdays: details of this week’s services and other news are here. Please check with the Parish Office if you need to know whether the church is due to be open on a specific day: opening is subject to availability of volunteer welcomers.
Follow the Star, Join the Song: Advent Reflections at St Mary and St Eanswythe
Three travellers seek wisdom this Advent:
Monday 4th December at 7pm: Fr John Tomlinson
Monday 11th December at 7pm: Vicky Friedrich
Monday 18th December at 7pm: Fr John Walker
Join us at the Vicarage in Priory Gardens on Monday evenings as Fr John T, Vicky, and Fr John W share some insights about what Advent and Christmas mean to them through words, art, film and music.
We’ll enjoy some mince pies and mulled wine together and, if you’re concerned about travelling home in the dark, we’ll arrange lifts to get you safely home afterwards.
Sign up by adding your name to the sheet at the back of the church or by emailing Rosie at firstname.lastname@example.org

Mission and Ministry Priorities
Please click here to read about our mission and ministry priorities over the next two years, and listen to sermons on various aspects of the priorities which Father John and our other preachers will record.
We’re sorry that due to unavailability of volunteer welcomers the church will be closed to visitors on Mondays. The church will normally be open for visiting and private prayer between 11.00 and 13.00 on Tuesdays to Saturdays.
Our historic organ is in desperate need of major and expensive refurbishment. Please follow our organ appeal web site at https://www.eanswythes-organ.com or on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/eanswythesorgan for information about the organ itself and events in support of the appeal.
Please visit the Choir and Organ page for more information about the choir.
