Benefice Walk – Monday 7th May

Why not join folk from Wateringbury, East Malling and Teston on a Fun and Friendship walk round the benefice. Each leg of the walk will take between 1-1½ hours giving at least 30 mins for fellowship at each church. The total distance of the walk is 8.7 miles, but you can just do one leg of the walk if you wish to. However, if you are not able to join us for the walk, we would be delighted to see you at one of the churches.

We will meet for bacon rolls at 9.30amat the vicarage in East Malling, kindly provided by Father Nick. There is ample parking in the Institute car park behind the King and Queen car park.

Leg 1 – 10.00am- Walk from St James the Great to St Peter and St Paul at Teston(approx. 3 miles).

Leg 2 – 12 noon- Walk from St Peter and St Paul along the river Medway and then onto St John the Baptist at Wateringbury, (approx. 3 miles).  Walkers should take a packed lunch, we will stop at the Country Park on the Medway for lunch.

Leg 3 – 2.00pm- Walk from St John the Baptist back to St James the Great (approx. 3 miles).

Tea and biscuits will be available at Teston and Wateringbury churches and afternoon tea at East Malling at the end of the walk.

Please contact Peter or Liz (See contact page for details) to book in for the walk, so that we can tell Father Nick how many bacon rolls will be needed! If you plan on doing just part of the walk please let us know where you will join us, so we don’t set off without you!
