Service Times

Following the Government’s plan for easing restrictions due to the pandemic, we have considered returning once again to our communal worship. Although it still does not seem possible to make firm and definite long term plans, aware that the seasons of Great Lent and Easter are approaching, we plan to celebrate the Liturgy at All Saints’ church, Military Road, Canterbury CT1 1PA, where we have been so warmly welcome since last autumn, on:

Saturday 27th March 2021 at 11.00 am
Saturday 24th April 2021 at 11.00 am

These and any dates in subsquent months, inevitably, remain subject to possible change as the pandemic situation in the country develops. Of course, we shall follow all the agreed guidelines and protocols whenever we use All Saints’ church for worship.

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.

As we approach the season of Great Lent, we continue to pray that our God, in His great mercy, will guide and protect everyone!
