Where to find us

♦ St Faith's Church

Address: Station Road, Maidstone, ME14 1LH  [►map]

Clock face

St Faith's Church is located in Maidstone town centre next to Brenchley Gardens and near Maidstone East railway station. Note that the postcode (ME14 1LH) does not pinpoint our location exactly so please refer to the map link above to see where we are.

Adjoining the main church building is the Sharland Hall and kitchen, in which is served tea and coffee after a service, and a general meeting room.

Parking: Limited free on-site parking is available during services. Nearby parking is available in the Fremlin Walk parking garage (pay-before-exit), or at Maidstone East station or Brewer Street car parks (pay & display). Please note that our car park is locked when the church is not open, to ensure that it remains available to those who might be using the building later.

Blue Badge holders: Use our on-site parking if possible, otherwise additional public spaces for Blue Badge holders (only) are available in Station Road near Maidstone East station.

Accessibility: There are several steps to enter the church and Sharland Hall. A portable ramp is available on request. The toilets may not be wheelchair accessible due to the narrow confines of the ancient building.

 

♦ Ringlestone Hall

Address: Corner of Chatham Road & Moncktons Lane, Ringlestone, Maidstone, ME14 2PY  [►map]

St Faith's Church Hall 1935

Somewhat unusually for most church venues, our church hall is not in the same place as the church itself but is actually 2/3 of a mile away in Ringlestone, in the middle of the geographical bounds of our parish. Note that the postcode (ME14 2PY) does not pinpoint the hall's location exactly so please refer to the map link above for a better guide.

The Ringlestone Hall is used regularly for informal and community access worship services, as well as by community groups for activities such as Pilates, Rainbows, karate and local entertainment groups. It is also available to hire for private functions.

Parking: Plenty of free on-site parking. Please note that the surface of the car park is sand/gravel and may be muddy in places when wet.

Accessibility: There are several steps at the main entrance, and a single step at the side entrance which can be opened on request. The ladies' toilet indoors is accessed via more steps.
