Summer time is a laid back time for all of us. Why not take a little moment to take stock, relax, enjoy the natural air-conditioning of a Victorian church, listen to the birdsong, chill and be still.
Church is open for prayer Mondays @ 9.30am, Tuesday-Thursday at 8.30am and Sundays we meet for worship and Holy Communion at 8am and 10am.
Love to see you there.

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:
On Thursday 23 June, Great Britain was allowed to vote on something extraordinary – whether or not to remain in or to leave the EU. The politics had become ugly and many felt it was hard to hear impartial, reasoned debate – but nevertheless, this mattered to the British people – the turnout was 72% – and as you all well know 48% voted to remain and 52% to leave.
But what the figures reveal is that the UK is a deeply divided country, where some feel utterly disenfranchised, people who feel that their own government isn’t listening to them or their needs. But it’s also a country where others feel we’re fuelled by a xenophobic nationalism. And where another group – those who live here from outside the UK – now feel unwelcome and unsafe.
We can argue the politics all day. As a priest, I’m not in a position to comment on how it will affect the NHS, the economy, who should be our new prime minister – these are outside my remit. But I think it’s important as a priest and the Vicar of this church, to call the Christian community to take seriously its task in the world. Watever their politics, whether they voted leave or remain, there are certain key things all Christians should be committed to.
