In 838 King Egbert of Wessex held a Great Council in Kingston and helped to cement the relationship between Crown and Church which has shaped our national history to the present day. In the tenth century the first Kings who can be called Kings of England were anointed and crowned in Kingston in a predecessor of the present church – Kingston crowned Kings before Westminster Abbey was built.

Over the last eight years the ASK project has been carrying out an ambitious plan to raise the profile of this important national heritage.  We have already completed the first half of this project by providing a restored Church that lives the lives of those Saxon Kings through telling the story of the Coronation Stone and the formation of the Kingdom of England.  In the second phase we hope to provide new community facilities that enable this important central Kingston location once again to be the hub of the community, as it was 1,000 years ago.
