  • 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.

    Reculver Deanery Missional Learning Communities
    Please pray today for the Missional Learning communities and the Fresh Expressions of Church gathering, worshipping, praying and witnessing in our deanery.

    Having embarked on our journey as a Missional Learning Community, we are tuning-in to God’s word in a new and focussed way – prayerfully listening and sharing with one another, seeking renewed strength and guidance for the future. We want to see more clearly the missional possibilities and to trust in God’s provision for them so as not to be blinded by financial limitations but rather open to risk going where God sends us as the Holy Spirit wills and in union with Christ.

    (Prayer request written by Revd Carol Smith - Area Dean of Reculver Deanery)
