Our Rector is Peter Ashman, who was born in Kent and worked as a healthcare professional before a change in vocation brought him to the church over 20 years ago.
Peter came in 1999 and has responsibility for Lyminge, Paddlesworth, Postling and Stanford parishes. These are part of the Elham Deanery, within the Canterbury Diocese. We enjoy links with Lyminge Methodist Church (sharing some services eg Harvest and Remembrance Day) and Lyminge C of E Primary School (eg assemblies and School Prayer Week).
Peter wants to help his parishioners feel closer to God and enjoys offering a wealth of services, seeking to expand our churches' appeal to as many people as possible. From 'Messy Church', which really is as it sounds, to the traditional Sung Eucharist.
