St Martin's Church

Welcome to St Martin's - a friendly and 'Inclusive Church' worshiping in a very historic building in Canterbury. Our church is the oldest church in the English speaking world still used for regular worship. As a church with a long history we welcome many pilgrims and tourists. 

Our main Sunday service stands aims to make the most of our special space in the form of a Quiet, reflective Eucharist.
On the first Sunday, we have a sung service with hymns.
We also have a monthly service of Quiet Prayers in the afternoon. As well as our regular services we offer range of traditional and relaxed services along with our sister church.
