Welcome to the official website of
Upchurch Parish Council
Upchurch is situated just off the A2, between Rainham and Sittingbourne, in the County of Kent. It has been here for centuries, and is now a bustling village, population approximately 2,500, which still retains a rural atmosphere, despite being within easy reach of the Medway Towns, the north Kent coast and many other places of interest such as Canterbury and Rochester
Upchurch has many facilities, such as a fine 13th Century church, a thriving primary school, a busy Village Hall, three pubs, farm shops, a golf course and many other activities, making it both a good place to live and to visit.
