Church Activities and Coronavirus

St Catherine's ChurchIn light of the latest guidance from the government and the Church of England, our usual pattern of Sunday services and other midweek gatherings must be put on hold with immediate effect.  This affects all areas of our church life.

Instead we are exploring how to be a different kind of church, and how to both keep in contact and provide practical help.

Accordingly we encourage you to :-

  • Join our video live-streamed ‘At Home’ Morning Prayer service via our Facebook page .  We say it together at 10am each Morning.  Please download a service booklet from here.
  • Watch our other daily videos on our Facebook page or on our website here.
  • Keep in contact via email, social media or telephone with each other.  If you are not already in one of our ‘Virtual Groups’ and wish to be included, please email us.

Please refer to this page for Practical Help if you are ill or isolated.

Please refer to this page for Spiritual Help during this time.
