St Mary the Virgin, LamberhurstInformation: Our venue, the church of St Mary The Virgin is in Lamberhurst south of Tunbridge Wells on the A21. There is now a bypass and if you are going south you will reach the roundabout on the A21 where the bypass begins. Go right here into Lamberhurst and the church will be found up Church Road which is the first left as you come down into Lamberhurst. If coming into Lamberhurst from the south go into the village up the main street and turn right into Church Road at the top of the hill. If you reach the roundabout you have gone too far.

 The Community is part of the worldwide Orthodox Church, and its services are celebrated mainly in English, with some prayers in church Slavonic and Greek as our members represent a diversity of cultures and language Members of all Christian communities are most welcome to attend our services, and to share in (bring and share) refreshments afterwards.
