Service Times

After a very long time when it has not been possible to hold any services for our Community, the Guidelines issued by the Government allow us now to resume worshipping together.

Alas, during the current pandemic The Memorial Chapel of King’s School, where we normally worship, is not available to outside visitors. Following a period of reflection and thanks to a most generous offer of welcome by one of the parish churches in Canterbury, we are glad to be able to announce that we shall celebrate the Liturgy again next month. Please note that, for the time being, this will be on a Saturday with the first occasion on:

Saturday 24th October 2020 at 11.00 am at All Saints Church, Military Road, Canterbury CT1 1PA

All Saints church is on Military Road, located between the Sorting Office of the Royal Mail and the Canterbury City Council on Military Road, with ample on-street parking nearby. As is the case with every place of worship at present, we shall follow all the relevant Guidelines.

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

Father Alexander
