St Swithun's

open door to a healing heart

Parish church

St Swithun’s is the parish church of Hither Green in South East London:
an “open door to a healing heart.”
We are situated at the centre of the Community and are working towards truly being at the centre of the emerging village that is Hither Green.
We aim to be a place where every person feels a sense of ownership and belonging and find acceptance, friendship, and joy.

Your church

If you live in the parish of Hither Green  you are entitled to be Baptised, Married or have a Funeral service in your church.  We are the servants of the parish!  Of course we are also delighted to welcome people who travel to us from outside the parish for a rather informal, but reverent , and friendly atmosphere.
Everyone in England is part of a parish.  To check whether we are your parish church go to A Church Near You
