Your Online Parish Clerk for Dunkirk is:  VACANT.  

Dunkirk is, ecclesiastically, in the diocese of Canterbury, in the archdeaconry of Canterbury.  The church is named for Christ Church with registers commencing during the early mid-1800s.

Dunkirk, an extra-parochial ville, which is also a chapelry, in Faversham district, Kent;  1-3/4 miles northeast of Selling rail station, and 2-1/2 west-by-north of Canterbury.  Post town, Boughton, under Faversham.  Acres, 4,620.  Real property in 1860 £4,150.  Population in 1861, 721.  Houses, 146.  The land formerly was part of Blean forest;  and a large portion of it now belongs to the dean and chapter of Canterbury.

The name Dunkirk was first given to it, about the middle of last century, by a body of squatters, who took free or forcible possession of the land, and who became notable for smuggling practices.  Many of the persons implicated in the extraordinary outbreak of 1838, connected with Sir William Courtenay or Thoms, were inhabitants of Dunkirk.

The living is a perpetual curacy in the diocese of Canterbury.  Value, £133 with a habitable glebe house.  Patron, the Archbishop of Canterbury.  The church is a flint structure, with a tower;  and was built after the outbreak of 1838.1
