Summer 2019

As usual the parish church of St Leonard is open every day during the summer months, and the Crypt and ossuary are open every day, too, but at certain times. Follow the link on your left to The Ossuary for more information about visiting the Crypt.

Our church services in the summer will all be at the usual times, but at St Leonard's church there is no choir at the main Sunday service during August.  

News from the Diocese of Canterbury... we have a new Bishop! You can read more about the about the appointment of Rose Hudson-Wilkin as Bishop of Dover here and if you'd like to learn a bit more about Rose, you can listen to her Desert Island Discs here.  You can also read about the men and women ordained in Canterbury Cathedral on June 29th to serve as deacons and priests in our diocese. 

A declaration calling for better treatment of those seeking asylum has recently been signed in Dover to mark international Refugee Week. You can read more about it here, and hear from the staff of Canterbury diocese about their involvement in the project.

Music, music music.... The Friends of St Leonard's continue their concert season. 

In July, St Leonard's will be hosting several events for the JAM on the Marsh Festival, including the Ashford Youth Jazz Orchestra, The Grier Duo, and a wonderful evening concert involving several choirs, our fine organ and a brass ensemble, in a programme that includes newly commissioned work.

More details from the Friends of St Leonard's website, or from JAM on the Marsh.
