Many thanks to the guides, volunteers and visitors who made this

an interesting and successful fundraiser

Tour guides: Lance Austin and John Simmons

Five tours inside and outside the church took place which gave visitors the opportunity to discover the history of St Peter and St Paul Church from when it began as a Chapel of Ease in the 12th Century until today as the parish church of Worth.

Items of silver and glass and church records from mid 18th century, which belong to the church of St Peter and St Paul are usually deposited with the Canterbury Cathedral Archive and Library for safe keeping.

The PCC wishes to thank Cressida Williams, Archives and Library Manager for Canterbury Cathedral for allowing it to have these items on loan for the church to share with visitors.
