The Magazine Committee Purpose and Scope

The Sub-committee will be responsible to the PCC for :-

  • The compilation, production and distribution of the Parish Magazine.
  • Other matters, as referred to it by the PCC.
  • Recommending a cover price to the PCC & advertising rates.


The Parish Magazine 2017

The Magazine Committee has reluctantly decided that in order to ensure that we cover our anticipated costs for the coming year, and retain the capacity to include new features, it will be necessary to increase the cover price of the Staplehurst Parish Magazine to £1.50 per issue as from January 2017.  This is the first price increase for six years and, and we believe that the Parish Magazine remains extraordinarily good value, still less than a cup of coffee!

However, we are offering a real bargain to all our valued annual subscribers. This year you pay just £12 to receive a magazine each month: this equates to 4 free magazines!  To qualify for the reduced rate you must pay before the end of February; after that you will have to pay the full price of £1.50 per issue.

Please pay by cheque if possible – it makes it easier and safer for all concerned and we will know exactly whose money we are handling.  Cheques should be made payable to “All Saints Staplehurst PCC” and handed to your distributor who will ensure the magazine treasurer receives it.

If you don’t currently have the Magazine delivered to your door each month you can arrange this by contacting Mary Henley on 01580 891225 or by Email .

Thank you, and we look forward to your continued support.

The Magazine Committee

STAPLEHURST Pariah Magazine is far more than just a Church Magazine; it contains a lot of information about a wide range of organisations, activities and events of general interest in the village. It also carries advertisements for many of the local tradesmen and businesses.

All this for just £1.50 per month (or £12.00 per year for annual subscribers).

In a village appraisal the Magazine was voted the best source of information available in the village, which is probably why around half the households in the village already subscribe.

For a complimentary copy of Staplehurst Parish Magazine, totally without obligation, contact Mary Henley on (01580) 891225 or by Email

We are confident that you will be impressed!
