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.
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.
