Saturday, 24 September, 2016 - Thursday, 13 July, 2017

The Rochester and Canterbury Dioceses, South East District of the Methodist Church, South Eastern Baptist Association and the Salvation Army are delighted to make msm available locally. 

We believe it will be a significant resource for building the Kingdom of God in this area.
