About Us

We are providing on-line services for the whole team during the time when we cannot all gather in our own churches. You can watch the latest on the Youtube channel for the Blackrod, Daisy Hill. Westhoughton and Wingates Team at:

St Katharine's is a family friendly church, and all are welcome.  In "normal" times we have a lively Sunday School which meets during the Sunday morning service, and were the first church in the Diocese to gain the "Child Friendly" award. We have a hearing system, and facilities for those with disabilities, including a stair lift to the upper room. The church is a Grade 2 listed, stone building, mostly rebuilt in early 1900's, with a bell tower dating from the 16th Century. The church was re-ordered in 2000 to create meeting rooms up and downstairs, an office, kitchen and toilets. Our peal of six bells was recently restored and we have a growing team of bellringers.  See more on the website at www.stkatharine.net
