About Us

A friendly, growing church in Otford, Kent

We are a group of local and not so local people of different ages and backgrounds, joined together by the common belief that Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners.

We see the church primarily as a hospital for sin sick people who in community desire to grow more like Jesus, the Son of God. We believe the faithful preaching of God’s word, the Bible, is key to this aspiration, and that this should lie at the heart of our church life.

We seek to serve our neighbours in the village through an array of various ministries in the hope of being ambassadors for Christ.

After many years without a pastor to spearhead the work, we at OEFC welcomed Kevin Bracken into this role in January 2018. In April of the same year, the church leadership was further strengthened by the appointment of Stuart Cross as an elder. You can find out more about Kevin and Stuart on our team page.

The hope of the gospel in the heart of our community

This is our vision – the reason we exist. We believe Jesus brings hope to people’s lives, and we want to share that with our community in the village of Otford – and beyond!

We love our beautiful village location, but more than these stunning valley surroundings, we love the people of Otford.

Our Origins & History

Otford Church was founded in the village in 1970.

Our founder members are still in membership at the church to this day! You can see them in the following picture.
