Welcome to All Saints’ Church Staplehurst Kent
This was a fantastic evening of music, food, and enjoyment. A huge thank you to Stephen Higgins, Valerie Reid and Andrew Rees for giving their time and talents for the benefit of the Friends of All Saints, and to those who helped.
Thank you also for the many messages of thanks and appreciation I have received. There were over 90 people in the Church and due to your generosity we have made almost £1000.
Thank you for coming and supporting the Friends of All Saints.

All Saints’ Church Staplehurst Kent, stands on the top of the hill in the centre of the village and is often referred to as the “Church on the hill”.
The Church is at the south end of the village just a short walk off the A229, a Roman road that forms the main high street. It dates from the early part of the last Millennium; the south door has been dated to around 1050 and displays some very fine early ironwork on it.
The church is said to have been built around 1100. It served the farms which evolved from dens or pasture land used by herdsmen from the area around Maidstone. It is older than the village.
The name Staplehurst was first recorded in 1226, although specific dens such as Spilsill and Aydhurst are mentioned in Anglo-Saxon charters.
