About the Circuit (including current Circuit Preaching Plan)
Canterbury and East Kent Circuit
Proclaiming the Gospel of Christ’s Love through Joyful Worship, Action in Service, and Life in Discipleship.
Our calling is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ by encouraging, resourcing and enabling the people and churches of the Circuit to serve their communities and the wider world.
The new Circuit came into being in September 2014, and was formed from the merger of three Circuits (Canterbury & Coastal, Thanet, and Dover and Deal Methodist Circuits). The new Circuit now comprises of churches covering the north east corner of Kent from beyond Faversham in North West down to Dover in the South East, including Methodist/URC and Methodist/Anglican partnerships. The Circuit also includes two Methodist Foundation Primary Schools and Kent College Canterbury, an independent Methodist School. We also include Bradbury Grange MHA home.
Covering such a large and diverse area presents many challenges, but also many more opportunities. Canterbury is also home to three universities and its population is swelled by over 30,000 Students each year. The Circuit therefore has appointed a Deacon whose main ministry is to specially work with the Student Community.
We believe the Methodist Circuit encourages us to look beyond our individual congregations to give strength and mutual support to our large and small congregations alike, as we seek to embody the values of God's Kingdom and witness to the good news of Jesus Christ in the world.
