The Parish of Kentish Town
We are the Church of England community which worships at St Benet’s Church in Kentish Town.
Our congregation is growing and is made up of a wide range of people from different backgrounds and places, and of all ages. We are particularly blessed by the presence of large numbers of children and have a thriving Sunday School. We are all united by our faith in Christ Jesus, and our desire to make his love known and to serve our community in his name.
Our parish (the area for which our Christian community is responsible, and which it serves) is made up of most of Kentish Town on the northern and eastern side of the Kentish Town Road, and the houses to the north, between Kentish Town tube and Tuffnell Park tube stations.
The geographic area of St Benet’s parish is quite small in size, but it takes in a wide range of different sorts of housing, lots of shops and restaurants, a number of schools, and lies on the route of many bus, tube, and rail lines.
Our beautiful church, St Benet’s, is to be found on the corner of Lupton Street and Ospringe Road, along with our parish hall and church gardens. St Benet’s Church is our spiritual home and is where all our parish worship, activities, and events take place.
This map shows were our parish boundaries lie.
