St Michael's is mentioned in the Domesday Survey, and sits near the summit of the plateau in which much of the parish of Playden is found.

The Friends of Playden Church is a registered charity dedicated to helping to maintain the fabric of the beautiful Norman Church of St Michael.

St Michael's is mentioned in the Domesday Survey, and sits near the summit of the plateau in which much of the parish of Playden is found. The present building was constructed about 1190, and its spire is a landmark overlooking the Rye and Romney Marsh. The church is built of stone, has a tiled roof and an attractive cedar shingled spire, which is topped by a lead cross. It is thought to be an excellent example of the Norman, Early English style and comprises a chancel, nave, central tower, vestry and south porch. The aisles extend north and south of the tower.

The Friends of Playden Church is not primarily a group of church-goers, but nonetheless we cherish our church building which has been part of the community for nearly one thousand years. Our events emphasise friendship and community spirit, alongside having fun whilst fund raising.

We currently Have about sixty members and would like to build on that number. If you would like to become a member and join us and help maintain this beautiful building, the subscription is a minimum of £5 per person, or £10 for a couple or family. Cheques payable to "Friends of Playden Church" can be sent to the Membership Secretary, Mrs Marion Lovell, 7 Oast House Field, Icklesham, TN36 7BT.
