THE COMMUNITY OF HYTHE
St Leonard’s Church is a grand, old building with a rich history, a fine interior and a fascinating crypt. It occupies a commanding position on the steep hillside above the town and attracts many visitors, in addition to regular members of the congregation. Our parish church is a focal place of worship with a strong sense of mission and outreach within and beyond the community of Hythe.
The community of Hythe has a strong foundation in its civic pride, and there is some overlapping of civic occasions with parish life.
such as Mayor's Sunday or Remembrance Day are marked by services in the church. The ten bells of the church are often rung by our faithful band of ringers on request from the Town Council (see www.hythetowncouncil.gov.uk
). Our Vicar is Chaplain to the Hythe Town Council.
