Welcome to the Parish of St. Martin & St. Paul, Canterbury

Our Parish consists of two thriving churches within the City of Canterbury, Kent.

St. Paul's Church dates from Norman times and is very close to the city centre. St Paul's shares its loaction with the Parish Centre, built in 2005. The interior of the church underwent a major refurbishment which was compleleted in April 2013.

 St. Martin's Church  is England's oldest Parish church and part of the Canterbury World Heritage Site. St. Augustine visited our church in 597 to begin the mission authorised by Pope Gregory the Great. 

Together we continue our mission to live out the Gospel in thought, word and deed.

Our churches stand in the centre of the  Anglican tradition; we have an enthusiastic choir (new members welcome) and a lively Sunday Zone for children which meets at St. Paul's at 10.30 am in term time. 
The church also runs an informal Messy Church in the Querns community centre, a very popular monthly Taize service on a Sunday evening.
Please see this or our website for more details, contacts and service times!
WHOEVER YOU ARE, ALL ARE VERY WELCOME!!!

Mission Statement

We are called to worship God in Jesus Christ and to make Christ known in our community.
We do not have all the answers. We are on a spiritual journey. We look to scripture, reason and tradition to help us on our way.
Whoever you are, we offer a space for you to draw nearer to God and walk with us.
