Rector's Welcome:We are two thriving churches serving a large and diverse parish close to the centre of Canterbury, seeking to work alongside the whole community and supporting allwho live, worship, visit and work here. We are a parish with a long tradition - a place
where you can belong wherever you are on the journey of faith or whatever
questions you have.
We are a diverse group of people committed to being an open, inclusive and welcoming community, journeying together and growing in faith. We hope everyone feels at home here and you can play a full part in the life of the parish, regardless of disability, economic power, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, learning disability, mental health, or sexuality.
Even as things ease it is still important to keep in touch and to keep praying as we return to a more recognisable church life. Please explore our website to find details of all our activities and services. If you need anything at all please feel free to contact us, we are here to help and to talk, offering support as we emerge from difficult times.
Every blessing,Mark Griffin, Rector - and all the team at St Martin’s and St Paul’sWatch us online:

Our Parish vision:
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.
