Kings Hill

Kings Hill, near West Malling, is a large housing development which is entering its third major phase of building. The development brings significant opportunities for the Church. In September 2015 the congregation’s first full time Priest-Missioner began work. Members of the growing St Gabriel’s Church currently worship and engage in community activities a local school hall.

The current phase of development includes provision for a place of worship with a site earmarked for use in the heart of the community. Following approval of a strategic project by Bishop’s Council in January 2016 the Strategy and Implementation project team, in conjunction with the incumbent, are undertaking the work necessary to secure site transfer and deliver a planning application and tender document ready for submission and issue. This work, involving consultation and communication with a wide range of stakeholders, involves exploring the potential for an interim building to meet current congregation and community needs whilst approvals for a permanent church and community facility are secured..
