Forthcoming Events

Herne Community Festival
Herne Community Festival

St, Martin’s Church is hosting our Herne Community Festival over the weekend of 16/17th July as part of our National Lottery Fund inspired Outreach Programme.

It will be opened at 11.00 on Saturday jointly by Trevor Willmott, Bishop of Dover, and Robert jones, last year’s Sheriff of Canterbury.

This is not a fundraising event so admission is free, but the weekend aims to foster a spirit of community amongst the people of Herne and Broomfield.

On the Saturday, we have some 17 local groups and organisations setting up stall inside or outside the Church to publicise themselves and to entertain our visitors.

On Sunday afternoon, after normal Church Services in the morning, we are staging a concert featuring local performers culminating in a ‘Last Night of the Proms’ style community sing song led by St. Martin’s Band and friends.
