OUR NAME

Our church has been named after St Martin of Tours (316-387). Martin as a young Roman soldier outside Amiens, one cold winter night, cut his soldier's cloak in two with a sword and gave half of it to a beggar (shown in the picture from a stained glass window in Canterbury Cathedral). Shortly after that he had a vision of Christ wearing the half cloak. This led him to commit his life to full time service for the Lord. He was known as a healer, and developed a practical service to Christian and pagan alike. He was the pioneer of monasticism in France, and later became the Bishop of Tours in France.
