Saturday 12th December 2020 at 11.00 am
at All Saints church, Military Road, Canterbury CT1 1PA

All Saints church, where we are worshipping during the period of the pandemic, is located between the Sorting Office of the Royal Mail and the Canterbury City Council on Military Road, with ample on-street parking nearby.

We shall follow any further developments and guidelines issued by the Government and the Church authorities and accordingly confirm the programme of our services in the months ahead.

We continue to give thanks to God for His care and pray that He will guide and protect everyone!
