  • 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.

    Canterbury: St Stephen
    Clergy: Kevin Maddy
    Readers: Peter Toon, Sally Walters
    Anna Chaplain: Sally Waters
    School: The Archbishop’s School

    St Stephen's continues to maintain a high standard of church music thanks to our musical director Steve and the choir, and a strong tradition of theological reflection thanks to Philip and our theology group. Please pray for them and for Angela and our churchyard working group who have done so much to make our grounds attractive, and also for Margaret, Libby and Sally who coordinate our pastoral activities, including lunches at St Stephen's Junior School and Mothers' Union outings and Tea at Three activities. Please pray for The Archbishop's School and for David and Giles and the leadership team as they prepare to appoint a full-time school chaplain.
