Kids In Service —3 March

Do you know anyone who wants to share the love of Christ with their little ones but who struggles to get the little cherubs to sit still in the pews? Next week will be our Kids In Service. This service is designed particularly with children in mind.


Kids are encouraged to get up and move by participating in the service. They can help welcomers give out books (surprisingly popular!), do readings, help prepare the alter and even, if they can get mum and dad out of bed early enough, ring the bell to call everyone into church.


There will be a special kids talk and it is an excellent opportunity to bring along younger family members (grand kids???) to visit church in a more relaxed and interactive way.

Welcome to the website of St Paul’s Anglican Church in Canterbury. At St Paul’s we seek to be a community of people who are welcoming and caring, connected to God and to each other. We believe that the Christian faith has profound things to offer people who are searching. We take seriously the desire of people to search, to question and to enquire. St Paul’s Church is one of Canterbury’s treasures. Its ambience, pipe organ, stained glass windows and other works of art enhance our worship and spiritual lives. We cannot wait to meet you!

The Anglican Season

St Paul's Anglican Church Canterbury - Cross Epiphany Season

By Rev Rachel McDougall

The season of Sundays after epiphany is the great season of light. We celebrate the revealing of Jesus Christ as God’s Son.

‘Epiphany’ means ‘revealing’, ‘manifestation’ or the revealing of God’s light to all. In the visit of the wise men we see that Jesus is the one for all people. In the story of the Baptism of Jesus we see Jesus revealed as the one who is identified with us in baptism and revealed as God’s beloved son. He goes into the water as a carpenter and comes out named beloved as God’s son.

The story of the wedding at Cane reveals the glory and generosity of God when, for the humble wine for a wedding. water became wine. Over the rest of the season of light we hear Jesus begin his ministry as the one who brings hope, healing and joy to all, through word and deed.

The season ends with another revealing as again Jesus is named as God’s Son on the mountain top; transformed before his followers and bless for his journey to the cross.

The season of Epiphany invites us to look for how God is revealed to us every day – the ‘epiphanies’ that are there, how we see the light of God’s presence with us every day – bringing us light and life and hope.
