St. Andrew’s Church is seen by many in the town as one of the focal points of the Paddock Wood community.
St Andrew’s takes seriously its commitment to be a focal point for many in the town of Paddock Wood, offering a variety of opporutnites for engagement with other partners and individuals. Listed below are some of the partners we work with: Paddock Wood Town Council The Royal British Legion, The Royal Naval Association, Paddock Wood Primary School, Mascalls Academy, St Justus Roman Catholic Church, Paddock Wood Baptist Church, The 11th Tonbridge (St Andrew’s) Scout Group, The Paddock Wood Guides District.
Here are some of the events we have been part of this year:
Paddock Wood Carnival
This is a gathering of many different associations and the public on the 2nd Saturday in July for an opportunity to celebrate our community on St Andrew’s Field.
In association with the The Royal British Legion, The Royal Naval Association, The Town Council, St Andrew’s hosts a service at 9.30am before a parade moves down to the War Memorial, on Commercial Rd, before the town pays its respects with a two minute silence.
For the last two years St Andrew’s has hosted a Christmas lunch on Christmas Day for those who find themselves on their own. Supported by many of the shops and individuals we are able to offer a full Christmas Dinner, drinks, presents and entertianment for those who would otherwise find the day something of a challenge.
