WELCOME

Rev Jo Richards


St Dunstan's Church, St Mildred's Church and St Peter's Church in Canterbury, Kent, UK are temporarily closed for services and events due to the Covid 19 health risk.   

Dear Friends

During the pandemic, I will be praying Morning Prayer at 9.00 am and Sunday Eucharist at 10.00 am from The Rectory online via the Benefice YouTube channel.  Follow the services on the Church of England website.  You may also like to download the Order of Service and the Worship from Home booklets.

Far from 'shutting up shop', we must face this challenge by becoming a radically different kind of church as we seek to continue to be rooted in prayer and serve others.  We are also producing on-line resources which we will be emailing/posting to you, so you can worship at home, along with other on-line resources.  We are implementing a pastoral care plan for our vulnerable and elderly; but urging you all to keep in touch. 

We are being guided throughout by our local bishop, Bishop Rose, who is acting on the guidance of the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, that Church of England churches should suspend all acts of public worship with immediate effect.  You can read about their guidance here.  The archbishops encourage us to support our local food bank.  To do this, please see the adjacent below. 

As Bishop Rose has asked: keep safe, keep praying and keep connected.  God Bless and we will give regular updates.
Every Blessing to you all at this difficult time.

"I lift my eyes up to the hills, from where will my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth". Psalm 121

While staying at home during Lent, use this time to calm yourself and focus on the love of God.  Read the Bible and listen to Him.  Draw close to God.  'Do not fear, for I am with you, do not be afraidfor I am your God; I will strengthen youI will help youI will uphold you'. Isaiah 41:10.
