About Our Church

We are the Anglican and Methodist church in the villages of Sturry, Westbere, Hersden, Fordwich and Broad Oak.
Our church is an “LEP” (Local Ecumenical Partnership) and we have a mix of Anglican and Methodist services, although we welcome Christians from any denomination to join with us in worship. 

Canterbury Diocese

We are part of the Canterbury Diocese within the Church of England. The diocese covers the area of Kent east of the Medway. Within this we are part of the Canterbury Deanery.

Being so close to Canterbury Cathedral means we sometimes take part in events at the Cathedral, such as Deanery Songs of Praise services, the Easter Monday Pilgrimage, special events such as The Gathering and talks or Bible Readings such as the Easter week series of lectures.


We are part of the Canterbury and East Kent Circuit. The Circuit covers Canterbury and Coastal, Thanet and Dover & Deal. 

Our services are led by clergy and lay people from both traditions.


Churches Together in Sturry

As part of Churches Together in Sturry we work closely with the Catholic Church in Hersden.
