Our Churches


ST MARTIN'S

St. Martin’s Church is England’s oldest parish church still in regular use for worship. Predating both Canterbury Cathedral and St Augustine’s Abbey, St Martin’s dates back at least to the late 6th century, when King Ethelbert gave the building to his Christian wife, Bertha as her private chapel. Bede relates that St. Augustine worshipped here at the very start of his mission to convert the English. Such is the historical significance of this church that, along with the ruins of the Abbey of St. Augustine and Canterbury Cathedral, St Martin’s is one third of the Canterbury World Heritage Site and is in a good state of repair. See more...


ST PAUL'S

St. Paul’s is a 12th century church which was extended and greatly changed during the Victorian era. In 2013 it was reordered with new lighting, a sound and AV system, and fully flexible seating. This transformed space has enabled us to offer new and inspiring worship in the form of special services, including the monthly St. Paul’s@TeaTime service for children and their families. It has also been used for concerts, large meetings, barn dances, a tea party, and even a pantomime! See more...
