  • Welcome to Canterbury Diocese

    Canterbury Diocese is the oldest diocese in England, stretching from Maidstone to Thanet, the Isle of Sheppey to the Romney Marsh. We have 350 miles of coastline with historic ports and seaside resorts, alongside rural communities, market towns and commuter-belt urban developments. Affluent areas often sit alongside pockets of major deprivation, offering an exciting and challenging mission context. 

    At the heart of all we do is a vision of transformation for ourselves and our communities: no one can encounter God and remain unchanged. In the Diocese of Canterbury, we want to increasingly become a Christian community transformed through encounter with Christ, growing and overflowing to transform and bless the families, homes and communities we serve: Changed Lives, Changing Lives.

    We pray that we will be strengthened by the Spirit as we reach out in practical care as the pandemic continues to affect the lives of our community. We pray for our Pastoral Care Team ministering across the parishes and our Café Ad-Hope who pastor to parishioners with mental health issues. We give thanks for the generosity for our Pastoral Relief Fund to assist those in need and yet we pray for a generosity of Spirit that empowers people to be led by Christ and to financially support the cost of mission. We pray for the rebuilding of children and teens ministry after the pandemic. We give thanks for every blessing!
