Kings Hill

The Kings Hill development near West Malling is a large housing development which is entering the third major phase of building. The residential and commercial developments bring significant opportunities for the Church. Members of St Gabriel’s Church currently worship in a local school hall, where associated activities also take place. In September 2015 the congregation’s first full time Priest-Missioner began work.

There is agreement for a site for a church building in the heart of the community. Bishop’s council meeting in January 2016 approved a strategic project to develop plans for a church building to planning and tender stage. This work is currently ongoing, with local consultation taking place to establish the needs of the community.

The project team are exploring the potential for an interim structure, offering a dedicated space for community activities and worship while the permanent church is designed and built.
