St Dunstan’s, the parish church of Cranbrook, is a vibrant worshipping community that seeks to reach out into the town and surrounding area with the love of Christ.
No matter what your background, current understanding of the Christian faith or if you are an enquirer, seeking to find out more, you can be sure of a warm welcome. The best way to get to know us is to join us on Sunday for one of our services or try one of the activities during the week.
The Vicar of St. Dunstan’s, Richard Wiliams, joined in the Autumn of 2009, after being Vicar of a large church in South London for the previous nine years. He is married to Anna and has three children, Rebecca aged 21, who lives and works in London, Sally 18, who is at Newcastle University, and Ben 15, a pupil at Cranbrook School.
Richard was brought up in Shoreham Village in Kent and attended The Judd School, Tonbridge. After university, he qualified as a Chartered Accountant and worked in City investment banking before his ordination in his early thirties. His passion in life is to build a contemporary church that is relevant and accessible to all. Richard says, "When I was growing up, church to me was quite dull and boring. But when I attended a church in London, with many younger people like myself and good preaching from the Bible, I found a living faith in the Lord Jesus and how His life and teaching is relevant to every aspect of my life".
