Exploring

There is much to explore both online and in Faversham and the church. From hassocks, to misericords, brasses to memorials, the famous painted column and long history of kings and queens.

We’ve added a lot of this material online but there is much more in and around the church itself.

Learning

The parish church of St Mary of Charity and the surrounding area provides a great learning environment for getting out of the classroom. We’ve put together both teacher and parent packs to help children, learn, explore and be inspired.

From pirates to architecture, food to rebellions come and learn through Built to InSpire.
