Anyone is welcome at our Canterbury site. Whether you’re a Christian or just looking into Christianity, we would love to get to know you. Our desire is that everyone, whatever their life story, feels welcome to enjoy our Sunday morning services.
On a Sunday morning we spend time worshipping Jesus together and hear preaching from the Bible. We love the Bible’s call for the Church to be family – we do this on Sunday mornings through having time to connect before and after the service over a good cup of tea or coffee, through our under-18's groups and through serving and praying for one another.
WHEN WE MEET
We do things a bit differently in August:
Sunday 25 August: Summer Sunday - Both sites join together in Canterbury for a short service outside at 10:15am followed by a picnic. Head out to the field behind St Stephen’s Junior School. ///tops.gadgets.hillsides (map)
Sunday 1 September: Back to normal with our Sunday meeting time of 10:15am - 12:10pm
St Stephen's Junior School
Our crèche provision is for babies aged from 6 months to 2 years. Crèche begins after our time of worship and runs until the end of the service at 12.10pm. The babies have a great space to enjoy free play, sing songs and be read to.
We have three ‘City Kids’ groups; ‘Explorers’ (2 to start of reception), ‘Pioneers’ (reception, years 1 and 2) and ‘Trailblazers’ (Years 3, 4, 5 and 6). They enjoy some time of worship with the church family before heading into their groups for a fun and engaging morning learning about Jesus in interactive ways.
Our ‘City Youth’ group is for those in secondary school. After spending the first part of their morning worshipping with the church family they go into their group; where they have engaging talks from the Bible and discuss how to apply the truths of the Bible to their lives.
