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 Pentecost & Sundays After Pentecost I tell you the truth, said Jesus, it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Advocate will not come to you, but if I go I will send him to you. (John 16:7) On the fiftieth day after Easter, the disciples were gathered together in a house, in Jerusalem. Suddenly, they were overcome by a great, wind-like sound from heaven. Tongues of fire appeared above the heads of the disciples. Everybody, even those from foreign lands, could understand the speech of the disciples. The promised Holy Spirit came to the disciples, and all at once, they were no longer dazed and confused. They were no longer broken hearted and afraid. An enormous change came over them. They understood at last who they were, and who Jesus was, and what his life could mean to others. On the Day of Pentecost, the disciples of Jesus knew that they were witnessing the birth of a church that was of God and would be preserved to the end of time. The liturgy changes following Pentecost Sunday – i.e. from the First Sunday after Pentecost to Christ the King (which is the Sunday before Advent). As we celebrate each of these Sundays we have the opportunity to reflect upon God’s Word in an orderly and comprehensive way. We also find ourselves being the living and visible sign of God’s Kingdom in this world. All that we have heard and said and did from Advent through to Pentecost is summed up in our Sunday celebrations. We, the people of God, are made fruitful, and we are equipped to live in Christ and to reveal him to this world.– The People’s Work – 2000 – M W Merriman
