A warm welcome to St Leonard's Church, Hythe! This church, which has stood here for a thousand years, is a fine,
elegant and impressive building. It stands proud, looking down over the town, and on a clear day the coast of
France can easily be seen.
Thousands of visitors pass through its doors every year but the greatest glory of St Leonard's is its role to
worship and glorify God.
The church is unusually full of features that will bring to life the devotions and prayer life of our medieval
predecessors. Today it continues, first and foremost, as the spiritual home of a worshipping community of
Christians. While you linger in this place, please take the time to stop and pray for those who worship here and
continue to uphold the inspiration of their ancestors.
