About the venue

Christ Church was built in 1909 to cater for an ever growing community in Dartford. In the last decade, major works were conducted to make it comfortable, welcoming and brilliantly accessible. The church provides activities and support for all areas of the community including a toddler group, 'Men's breakfast' and tea and cake afternoons for the older generation. We love the light and airy spaciousness of Christ Church, which offers Bach to Baby audiences a relaxing atmosphere to enjoy the concert.
