Diamond Jubilee Service of Thanksgiving and Celebratory Reception

September 30, 2022

Canterbury Cathedral and afterwards at Abbey Square on the main campus.

In September 1962, the then Christ Church College opened its doors for the first time and welcomed seventy five students wishing to become teachers in Church of England schools.

We are holding a day of thanksgiving and celebration to mark this special occasion.

The day will commence with a Service of Thanksgiving in Canterbury Cathedral commencing at 10.30am for all colleagues, students, governors, former staff, alumni, honoraries and invited stakeholders, and their families. The Most Reverend and Right Honourable Justin Welby, our University Chancellor and Archbishop of Canterbury, will give the sermon.
