Danny Mott, whose daughter and son-in-law purchased the former church in January last year, has kindly allowed me to share a selection of his photos. No work has yet been started, but the Dropbox folder will be updated as and when construction begins.

St John's Church, Faversham

Looks like it would make a fantastic home.

Seems to be privately owned. By whom, I wonder!
It`s quite a big building - can`t understand how I missed it.

It's easy to miss it, Bryn Clinch, I drove past it a few times before I noticed it, after all, it is up on an embankment.

No, Kyn, it hasn't.  The church is empty inside. I forgot to post this photo I took too.

A few years ago the church was being renovated to become a home.  I don't know if that work was complete or not.

Apart from the windows that are boarded up, the others do look boarded up too.

From another "silly old duffer" - I too thought it was boarded-up! Thanks for the pics, I didn`t know that this church existed.

The 1905 Walker Pipe organ was transferred from this church to All Saints, Boughton Aluph and around 2004 was rebuilt with one stop changed and another added.

Is that church all boarded up? as it looks like someone is looking out of the left hand window in your first picture...spooky.

 No it's not all boarded up. You silly old duffer, Sheppey Bottles, that's the light shining through the window on the other side of the church in my second photo.

I've just looked it up, it was the St. John the Evangelist Church, for The Brents and Davington.

My Mum and Dad were married here in the late 1950's. Sad to see it abandoned.

I took these photos of this church recently.
