St Catherine’s church will be open for private prayer from 12noon to 2pm this afternoon (Monday 22nd June). This is in response to the incident in Forbury Park in Reading on Saturday evening.
Social distancing should be observed during your time in church. The church has been re-arranged into a number of separate ‘stations’ to make this easier. Please enter by the north car park door.
You will be aware that current government restrictions limit the use of the church, so we regret that no public service or multi-household gathering can take place .

Following government slight easing of lockdown, and the latest CofE guidance, churches have been told that they may, if they wish, now open for private prayer, as long as they follow strict guidelines.
After careful thought and consideration, and having completed a risk assessment, the clergy and churchwardens have decided that St Catherine’s can open for private prayer for those who would like it, on request, starting from Monday 15th June.
In order to be compliant with guidelines, the following parameters have been put in place, and we would ask your assistance in maintaining these:

At this time it is not known which activities will re-start at what time. Please check back on this web site or our Facebook page for further details.
Other Hall Users
In line with Government Guidance, St Catherine’s Pre-School are the only users of the church hall. They are providing a reduced service in a restricted area of the building.
We have asked all other hall users to postpone their activities. They have contacted their users independently.
At this time we do not know when our church centre will re-open for use by other groups. Please check back on this web site or our Facebook page for further details.
Clearly it will be dependant upon those who run the groups as to when they may re-start once the hall is re-opened.
