Your local church is here for you!
In these times of change and uncertainty, we are open (even if the doors are physically closed at times!)
Worship, teaching and prayer opportunities are available on-line.
We have a Pastoral team so if you cannot access the internet or want to talk to someone . . . just let us know.
Please visit this website for all the most up-to-date information; it changes frequently!
It is with great regret that we have to announce that our churches will be closed for Public Worship, as from 9.00am on Thursday 14 January. The members of our churches who are involved in leading worship met via Zoom on Tuesday evening and the majority decision was that we should close until such time as it is much safer to move outside of our homes.
The decision was not taken lightly but we are mindful both of the health and safety of our members and the government's advice to remain at home as much as possible.
We are still part of the Church worldwide, and , although we are not meeting in person, we are still worshipping. We are glad to report that there will be regular online services, livestreamed from St Katharine's at 10.30am on Sunday mornings.
Please keep looking at this website on which we will continue to keep you up to date with what is happening in our parish. There are still church members who are beavering away in the background planning Zoom meetings and others who are keeping in contact with those who do not have a computer or who live alone.
If you, or anyone you know of, need help of any kind please telephone the Parish Office (01202 418476) or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
God bless you all and keep you safe
Normal Services on Sunday are:
9am at St Nicholas
1030am at St Katharine
At present we will be streaming a service from St Katharine at 1030am
Please take some time to look around our website, which hopefully will give you an insight into our church family.
We are always delighted to hear from people, so if there is anything you need to know that you cannot find here then please don’t hesitate to get in touch, and we will see if we can answer your question.
Both churches have a deep spirituality, and many people value spending time in them. Unfortunately, as with all Church of England Churches currently, we are only able to open both churches at set times due to the Government's restrictions on public assembly as a result of the Coronavirus situation.
Our weekly notices can be found here:
As a parish we seek to engage with our local community, and to show them the love of Jesus the Messiah in both word and action, and have encouraged our members to support family, friends and neighbours at this difficult time in our national life. Information on supporting local volunteer groups and the 'Together we can' intitative can be found in the Notices section of the website.
We hope you find the resources for prayer and our YouTube channel (link in the menu bar) useful as we continue to pray for all those affected by the Coronavirus pandemic.
Please do join us for Morning prayer on Zoom (8am Tuesday to Sunday), or for a half hour time of informal prayer on Wednesday evenings at 7pm, or on Thursday evenings at 7.30pm. More information can be found by clicking below:
May God bless you all,
Dean and Kevin - Churchwardens
