I came to Canterbury years ago with a cousin, and immediately was struck by the simple, quiet and peaceful beauty of these physical spaces. It is restful and restorative to be within these walls. I was moved by the welcoming environment of this community – received multiple invitations to be a part of what they do. I am continually reminded of the strong faith of the people at Canterbury; their certainty in the hope of the resurrection and their commitment to God’s work.My husband and I were married here. Our children were baptized and confirmed here. We have been active members of this community for over 20 years. It brings me joy to do good work together with other members of this community.
