Minster Abbey is at the heart of the village of Minster. It was at Ebbsfleet, a few miles from Minster that St. Augustine, sent by Pope Gregory the Great, landed in 597 to begin his mission to the Anglo-Saxon people. Within a few years of his arrival on the shores of Thanet, Christianity had spread throughout southern England, and monastic life began to flourish. Minster Abbey was one of the earliest monastic foundations.
