Canterbury Diocese has a special place in the life of The Church of England. It forms a focal point for the life of the whole Anglican Communion, offering a spiritual home and place of pilgrimage for people from all over the world. The diocese encompasses an area
often known as East Kent, stretching from Maidstone to Thanet, and the Isle of Sheppey to the Romney Marsh. Many areas in
Canterbury Diocese have been identified by central government for significant housing developments and this is having a massive impact across the diocese but especially in Maidstone, Ashford and Sittingbourne. Despite this, there is a distinctly rural flavour to the diocese as the County of Kent is still renowned as the ‘Garden of England’ and the former market towns of Faversham and Tenterden are
central to this rural heart .
