  • 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.

    Praying together in Lent

    Dear Lord,
    Through baptism, you have called us to share the good news of salvation. Open our hearts that we may discern this calling in our respective paths in life.
    We are gifted in so many ways. Help us to recognise these gifts and have the courage to use them, surrendering ourselves to you as we serve.
    Strengthen us during this global pandemic, so that we may be joyful as we seek to make a difference in people’s lives. Fill us O Lord with your Holy Spirit that we may have the courage to respond to this calling daily. Amen

    (Prayer Request written by Malcolm Gavin - Churchwarden at St. Martin's, Dover and Dover Deanery Lay Chair)
