  • 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.

    Maidstone: St Martin
    Clergy: Joyce Addison
    Reader: Robin Fassenfelt

    St. Martin's has returned to church and is offering a blended pattern of worship (in-house and online). We thank God for blessing us with tech-savvy people. Please pray for them as they lead us in this new worship context. God has powerfully and creatively used our building and gardens during lockdown for outreach and mis-sion. We would value your prayers as we continue to explore and discern what God is saying to us through this. In July we welcome Andrew Edwards as our Curate. Prayers for him, his family and the parish would be very welcomed. Thank you.
