  • 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.

  • Today's Prayer

    Sissinghurst: Trinity Church with Frittenden: St Mary
    Clergy: Peter Deaves
    Reader: Tony Staples
    Schools: Frittenden CE Primary School, Sissinghurst CE Primary School

    Praise God for his perfect timing (incredibly special Installation late February!) Huge encouragements seeing effective cooperation between churches, communities and Parish Councils, plus our parishes uniting to pray in regular virtual Prayer Hubs, and for 24 hours of prayer as we began our "Where is God in the Pandemic?" sermon series. Please pray for Pete, the wardens and the whole church, for continued unity, deep wisdom and infectious passion.
    May God’s Spirit use our HUGs (“Home-United Groups” launched mid-June) and other means to fan faith, and stir hearts to trust Christ our Rock through stormy seas. What a Friend we have in Jesus!
