On 20 November 2021, Bishop Rose commissioned a team of LGBT+ Chaplains for Canterbury Diocese. Our chaplains work together to offer information and pastoral care to LGBT+ people, their friends, family, and ministers. Find out more about the LGBT+ Chaplaincy team and contact a chaplain here

If you need any information about the chaplaincy, please contact the LGBT+ Advisor to the Bishop of Dover, Samuel Keeler-Walker on Samuel is a |licensed Reader and is available to preach and to speak with PPCs and other groups - contact him to explore the possibilities. 

Open Table

We now have an Open Table service in the Diocese at St. Peter’s Canterbury on the second Sunday of the month at 3pm. The service is for LGBT+ people, their friends, families and anyone who wants to belong in an accepting, loving community. 

At least one of our LGBT+ Chaplains will be at each service and available to talk.
