We are sad to announce the death of Dean John Simpson who was Dean of Canterbury from 1986 to 2000 and before that Archdeacon of Canterbury from 1981. He died at his home in Folkestone this morning, aged 85. As a community we give thanks for his long and very significant ministry here in Canterbury and our prayers go out to Ruth and his family at this time.

The funeral will be held in Canterbury Cathedral on Monday the 13th of May at 11.30 am.
