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 and private prayer, between 11.00 and 13.00, in addition to our regular services. 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. Currently we expect to be closed on July 26th, and during August we will be closed on every Thursday plus Saturday 20th.
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.
We are delighted to be able to host an exhibition of works by local artist Kerry Record until September 15th. The works can be viewed during normal visiting times: Monday to Saturday between 11.00 and 13.00.
