About Us
The KAS Churches Committee exists to foster interest in and understanding of Kentís churches.  These buildings are a rich repository of architecture, art and history. The group exists in relation to church communities, church buildings and other places of worship of all religions in Kent (including their contents, churchyards and associated buildings) to promote: study of their history and archaeology; publication of the results of such study; and, the spread of public knowledge of, and interest in, them.

   The Committee consists of a panel of people interested in church  buildings, spanning a wide range of backgrounds.  Some of us are have architectural interests, others are archivists, archaeologists and local historians.

What do we do?
   In the summer months, usually on a Saturday afternoon, we organise a visit to churches in Kent chosen for their exceptional architectural or historic interest (typically alternating between the east and west sides of the county).  There is usually a short informal address to introduce the building and point out special features of interest.  Light refreshments are available and there is plenty of time to explore the building for yourself.
