Yalding Parish Churches - Yalding | Collier Street | Laddingford




St. Peter & St. Paul's, Yalding

St Peter and St Paul's Yalding is a Grade 1* listed, dating from the 13th and 14th centuries. The impression today is of a bright well cared for church, still retaining many interesting and charming original features (decorative Nave ceiling, most of the wooden pews and a few Victorian windows still remaining). There is a fine pipe organ dating from 1905. The six bells are rung each week and were re-hung in 1978. Yalding has an average attendance of 62 adults and 10 young children.

New rooms were added in 2003, forming a vestry, a servery, an accessible toilet, a store, and two meeting rooms above which facilitate our regular Junior Church, after- service fellowship and community events hosted by the church, which include concerts and catering where requested.

We do not have a church hall but we have a fine village hall which is heavily used to host the large number of local organisations' events (over 60 at the last count).

The church is floodlit and lies in a large, closed churchyard behind 18th century houses fronting the High Street.

There is a separate extension churchyard for current burials. The closed churchyard is maintained by Maidstone Borough Council and the extension by a village volunteer team.

Yalding Parochial Church Council (PCC) is made up of 9 members, 2 Deanery Synod members and the Vicar is an ex-officio member including all sub committees.
