Meet our ministry team

And I will give you shepherds after my own heart,
    who will feed you with knowledge and understanding.

Canterbury is richly blessed with a unified pastoral team committed to the spiritual ministry of building up the church and encouraging the flock. They are well supported by the Session and the many faithful members who willingly serve the church family with sacrificial gifts of love and service.
