This Will Be The Third Time That A Latin Missa Cantata Has Been Celebrated In This Mediaeval Church Since 1538.



Saint Augustine's Church, 
Snave, Ashford, Kent.
A Latin Missa Cantata will be Celebrated here on Saturday, 23 September 2017, 1200 hrs.
Travel Directions are given, below.
It is possible that a small private Chapel stood on this site before the present building was commenced in the Late-13th-Century. The East End is unusual in that The Lady Chapel
(more recently used as a school room) vies for importance with The Chancel.
Declared redundant in 1983, Saint Augustine's Church is now entirely maintained by
The Romney Marsh Historic Churches Trust.
