WELCOME


St Peter and St Paul is the Church of England parish church for Seal, near Sevenoaks. Whoever you are, you'll find a warm welcome at our services and activities.  We believe that everyone is loved by God and is  part of his family. Whatever your background, age, or life-story, we'll be glad to see you.

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.

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.

The Long Shadow:
WW1 Stories


What is your family's story of WW1?
A grandfather who fought?
A grandmother who did war work?
A great uncle who was a concientious objector?
A family affected by the "Long Shadow" of this conflict?

We are gathering as many family stories as possible to display at our Remembrance Sunday service on Nov 9th.
Pick up a special form to write your story on from the back of the church or download here.

Return to the box in the church porch, or email or post to the vicar.
Every family has a story. What is yours?

You don’t need to write much if you don’t want to –just a name and a date will be fine – and you can write anonymously if you prefer.

 

To find out more, please contact Rev Anne Le Bas priest@sealpeterandpaul.com

Link to Church of England Weddings site

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 £417 and £637 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.
