Sunday Services at St. Catherine's

10:00am - This is when we have our Parish Communion where everyone is welcome.  We remember Jesus' last meal with His disciples and we eat and drink bread and wine as we remember how Jesus gave His life for us all.  The service includes hymns, time for quite reflection, a short talk and beautiful music. There is time for a chat and refreshments afterwards and usually lasts for a little over an hour.

At the same time (on the 1st & 3rd Sundays) another way of 'doing church' is taking place in the side aisle (during term times). Here adults and St. Catherine's Young People (SCYP) gather to learn more of God's love for them.  This would be especially attractive if you have had no church background in the past, as this service has a more relaxed feel about it.

If you would like to learn a little more, then please do email Lisa Tacon here.

6:00 pm -  This service alternates between Eucharistic and Non-Eucharistic and lasts around an hour or under.  The anointing of holy oil is sometimes offered during the Celtic evening prayer service - on the second Sunday of the month.  

1st Sunday - Common Worship Communion

2nd Sunday - Celtic Evening Prayer

3rd Sunday - Iona Communion

4th Sunday - Book of Common Prayer Evening Prayer

5th Sunday -  Communion

Midweek Service at St. Catherine's


10:30 am - Our mid-week Communion service is an ideal time to touch base with God. There are no hymns (although there will be reflective music) and the service lasts around 30 minutes.

Your Wedding at St. Catherine's Church

If you would like to be married at St. Catherine's, we would be delighted to help you through the planning process. Of course, the first step is to make contact: Canon Vince Fenton can be reached on 01388 760939 or pop in to see him, in the church Vestry most Wednesday evening's between 6 and 7pm.

You can marry in St Catherine's Church if you can show:-

That one of you: 

  • has at any time lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months or
  • was baptised in the parish concerned or
  • was prepared for confirmation in the parish or
  • has at any time regularly gone to normal church services in the parish church for a period of at least 6 months or

That one of your parents, at any time after you were born:

  • has lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months or
  • has regularly gone to normal church services in the parish church for a period of at least 6 months or

That one of your parents or grandparents:

  • was married in the parish

And did you know that if you move house, you're immediately connected to the church there? That means you can marry in the church of your new parish.

If you would like to learn more about getting married in an Anglican church then why not take a look at a website called

Christenings (Baptism) at St. Catherine's  

YES, we would love to baptise (Christen) your child or you yourself (yes adults come for baptism too)... so whether you are a new parent or an adult who wishes to be baptised, please come along most Wednesdays between 6 and 7pm - come in through the wheelchair access door which is set back, to the left of the main doors. 

If you are thinking about baptism - why come along and join us on Sunday at 10am... you'll find that we are not scary in the least - and you never know... you may even enjoy it and get something from the service, we hope so anyway!  

With God's blessing,

Vince Fenton
