About us

Minister Welcome

Welcome to Canterbury! 

We are thrilled that you have chosen to visit with us either by attending one of our events or through this web portal. In whatever way you have made it here, we are honored by your interest.

Canterbury is a church that is committed to helping people grow in their relationship with God through the person of Jesus Christ as we engage each other in life-transforming worship, learning and service.  We believe that the life of faith is best characterized by “love in action” so that instead of just telling people that God loves them, we embody the love of Christ in our relationships with each other and in mission and service to those in need in our community and beyond.

If you are up for the challenge, we would love for you to join us in our mission that will transform the world!  Even if you need more time to check us out to see if we’re for real, you are always welcome here.

With hope,

Rev. Dale Cohen, Senior Minister

Worship Schedule  


Canterbury was built for brides. Both our sanctuary which seats 1,000 and our chapel which seats 120 have beautiful center aisles that are a bride’s dream. Canterbury welcomes brides who are not members and guarantees their wedding date six months prior to their wedding.
