The Gospel Comes to England

When did the Gospel come to England?
In the second half of the sixth century, a Kentish prince married a Frankish princess. She came over to Canterbury, capital of Kent, and with her she brought the Gospel. This is how the Gospel came to England.

First English Christian King
The young prince was charmed, he loved his wife, and learned from her the Word of Jesus. Succeeding his father to the throne of Kent, he became king, and his consort became the queen. He became the first English Christian king, and made Canterbury the seat of a bishopric.
From the time when the Gospel came to England, Canterbury has remained famous throughout the ages as the centre of Christian pilgrimage.
