Welcome to St. Katharine's, Southbourne, with St. Nicholas
A warm welcome to the parish of St Katharine with St Nicholas, Southbourne on Sea.
Please note that you no longer need to book a ticket for worship as in line with the Government guidance we are operating under the "1 Metre plus" rule for social distancing. If you cannot wear a face covering you will need to maintain a 2 Metre distance from other people. We are still limited on capacity, but this has been greatly increased, and so we hope we can now accomodate all who come based on our current numbers of those attending. As we will now operate on a first come first serve basis, you are advised to arrive in good time.
Please note that currently the Goverment have dictated that Face Coverings are legally required to be worn in church unelss you have a legitimate exemption as per the Government Regulations
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:
