Welcome from the Minister


Hello and welcome to the Canterbury Baptist Church website! We are delighted that you have found us and hope that you will enjoy reading more about us.

Canterbury is a city very dear to my heart, a place of my early childhood, university study, engagement and marriage, commencement of Christian ministry and the birthplace of my first child.  Canterbury Baptist Church is similarly close to my heart, having seen God do mighty things during nine years of earlier ministry before returning to serve as Minister in November 2015.

With a recent refurbishment, we are seeking to continue the great work of past years with an ambition to see Christ’s church built and a thriving kingdom resource developed for the city and beyond.  We have six core values exampled by the church in Antioch (Acts 11:19ff and 13:1-3) identified as distinctive Christianity, authentic spirituality, strategic mission, true generosity, ethnic diversity and growth, these underpin our current activities but also our future vision under Christ.

I am so excited about what God has in store for this church and we would love to be a part of that future, so enjoy reading this website and do not hesitate to contact us for further information. We hope that you will visit sometime but pray for God’s richest blessing upon you in the meantime.”

In the love of Christ, Rev Andrew Fitzgerald.
