NEW KENT CHURCH Temporary Building at Westerham

A new church will shortly be constructed at Westerham, Kent. The Bishop of Southwark has acquired a large residence known as "Little Squerryes " situated in very beautiful grounds, where it is proposed to build a smae church, which will be used until such time as a permanent church can be erected.

Westerham is a busy market town, with a population of 3,368. It is estimated that there are about 80 Catholics in the town. At present they have to go either to Sevenoaks or Oxted to attend Mass.

It is probable that when, a few years hence, a larger church has been constructed, the proposed small church will be converted into a parish hall.

The new church will be served from Oxted (Surrey), where Fr. Oscar Leake is the resident priest.

Fr. Leake proposes to convert " Little Squerryes" into flats for the time being.
