Welcome to the
Little Dart Mission Community

We are a Mission Community of 12 churches seeking to serve our local communities and to share the good news of Jesus Christ.

Worship Services:

All of our churches are now open for regular Sunday worship.


Where churches are open services do feel very different as we seek to folllow the Church of England guidelines to keep each other and our communities safe;

  • Face masks are recommended unless you have an exemption. 
  • Communal singing is now possible with some churches making space for those who continue to wear masks.
  • Services are kept short at generally around 30 minutes.
  • Booking is required as numbers are limited by the Covid safe measures in place.  Details are included in the weekly news sheet, see link below.
  • We are advised to remind people not to mingle before or after the services as these are the moments of greatest risk of transmission in an otherwise Covid Safe environment.

In the meantime we are also continuing to worship online and details of our services can be found on our weekly news sheet.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, launched Daily Hope on Sunday 26 April 2020 as a simple new way to bring worship and prayer into people’s homes, during the lockdown period.


The free phone line – which is available 24 hours a day on 0800 804 8044 – has been set up particularly with those unable to join online church services in mind offering hymns, prayers, and reflections 24 hours a day while church buildings are closed because of the coronavirus.

The service is supported by the Church of England nationally as well as through the Connections group based at Holy Trinity Claygate in Surrey and the Christian charity Faith in Later Life.
