Who are we ?

The Congregation


The Congregations of St Catherine’s and Cornwell Community Church

A church is made up of people – a lot of different people, with different backgrounds and different life stories.  We join together with a common goal – to worship and serve God.  You are very welcome to join us.

Our Vicar

Rev Christine Bainbridge is supporting the parish while we await a full time vicar

Our previous vicar – Rev Denis Smith – moved on near the end of 2016.  While we wait for a full time replacement, Rev Christine Bainbridge from St John’s and St Stephen’s Reading has been supporting the parish on two Sundays a month and one day a week.

Our Church Wardens

Without a vicar, our Churchwardens have been busier than ever keeping the parish running.

Sonia Ludford

Sonia Ludford – St Catherine’s Warden

Sonia Ludford is based at St Catherines.  If you want help with a Baptism or arranging a wedding, you’ll probably end up talking with Sonia.


Richard Yates

Richard Yates – Cornwell Community Church Warden

Richard Yates is based at Cornwell Community Church – the other worship centre in our Parish.
