Talks - History; Talks - General Interest

Event Description

Kent is the birthplace of English Christianity. Its parish churches range from tiny Saxon structures to medieval civic statements. This talk takes a chronological look at dozens of churches, picking out the little details that visitors might overlook. Lavishly illustrated, it brings the buildings to life, and you`ll never look at an old church in the same way again! John has written 4 books on Kent Churches and is the author of dozens of church guidebooks.

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
