SOS from church as congregation shrinks

A nine hundred year old village church in Kent could be closed because it's used by only a handful of worshippers and is running out of funds.

All Saints Church in Graveney near Faversham was built in the 12th Century and has been a place of worship, prayer, weddings and community events ever since.

If the church does fall idle it will join between 20 and 30 churches closing across England every year.

Many of those that remain open are doing so with fewer than 20 regular worshippers. Sarah Saunders' report includes interviews with church council members Janet Turner and Michael and Patricia Page.
