Pattern and suggestions for characters here
Our ancient church is normally open during the day - many people use it - and the peaceful churchyard has beautiful views over the North Downs. It's a great place to be, and a great place to be yourself.

The Vicarage, Church Street, Seal, Kent, TN15 0AR
PLEASE NOTE: There are a lot of churches dedicated to St Peter and St Paul in Kent (17 in the Diocese of Rochester alone). We are often confused with St Peter and St Paul, Shoreham, Ash or Teston (East Malling). There is also another church near Seal, called Seal, St Lawrence, which is a couple of miles away in the village of Stone Street. Please check that this is actually the church you are looking for, especially if you are coming for a special event or service.

Love in the air?
Would you like to get married at Seal Church?
We'll be delighted to help.
It is nearly always possible for you to be married here at Seal Church, even if you don't live in the parish. Just get in touch with the vicar to talk about it.
Weddings cost between £445 and £665 depending on what "extras" you have, but if money is a problem we may still be able to help, so don't let that be a barrier.
Church weddings don't have to be big or fancy. Brides don't have to wear white. You don't have to be churchgoers. We'll be happy to help you plan a wedding that suits you, as far as it is legally and practically possible to do so.
