All Souls Remembering loved ones

Sunday 29 October, 4pm

This reflective service provides a space for those who have experienced bereavement to come together and to draw strength from the presence of God and from one another.

There will be an opportunity to light candles in remembrance of loved ones.

The service will be followed by refreshments, and all are welcome.

It’s Bible Sunday this week, and I will be devoting an entire service to the importance of this book in your home and in your lives.

Reading the bible helps us to grow as Christians. It helps us learn more about God and to be formed more like Jesus Christ. The Bible encourages us, challenges us, helps us, puzzles us and sometimes might confound/anger us.

Come and join us for this special service, and find out how you can bring the bible more into your life.

To get you started, you can find interesting facts and exercises to help you here.

So join us for the service and dive in. It’s easier than you think!

A Word Of Welcome


Rev James Bogle

Our tribute

Revd James Bogle has served as a priest at St Catherine's for 27 years.

He is known for his pastoral heart and excellent preaching. He has also been instrumental in the work and ministry of the Healing Group and in Churches Together (Nunhead and Hatcham).

He has faithfully visited many people in the parish for years, as well as supplying the content for the Prayer Diary.

In September 2012 he celebrated his 50th anniversary of ordination to the priesthood. On October 1st 2017 he stood down from public ministry. We all want to thank him for his ministry here and wish him all God's blessing for the future.

Welcome to our church

We are a warm and friendly church with a really diverse congregation in every way imaginable.

We are very local – linked with a myriad of things in this community. But also very global – we represent at least ten different countries and dozens of languages.   

Our worship is traditional with a small ‘t’ but with an informal feel. There’s reverence, thoughtfulness and laughter in near about equal measure.

There's a place for everyone at St. Catherine's, whether you are a committed Christian or right on the edges of faith. St Catherine’s is your local Anglican church whether you have just moved into the neighbourhood or have lived here for years.  

St Catherine’s strives to be welcoming, inclusive and faithful. We hope you feel at home. 

Our regular services at the church are:
