St Katharine's, Southbourne, with St Nicholas

Welcome to our parish, founded by personal friends of John Keble, instigator of the Oxford Movement.

Rooted within the Anglican Church, we are a parish that celebrates our Anglo-Catholic foundation, valuing scripture, the teachings of the early church and sacramental life. The Eucharist is central to the community’s worship, intended to appeal to one's whole person - to heart as well as head, to senses as well as to intellect. St Katharine’s and St Nicholas’ Churches offer different styles of churchmanship but we trust that you will find a warm welcome whenever you choose to join us for a Eucharist or an occasional office, including baptism and marriage. Details of our worship and fellowship will give you an insight into the many activities taking place for all ages. If you are new to the area, or to the church, please make yourself known to one of our churchwardens.

We are an inclusive church, and, whether you come as a family, a couple, or alone, we hope you will find friendship among us, and enjoy being part of our church family.
