About Us

There is a growing and vibrant community of worshippers at St Catherine's Church, Port Erin. The church benefits from being able to seamlessly combine both contemporary worship (provided by a music group) and traditional forms of worship on the organ. During the Summer months the church organises weekly concerts given by local musicians and choirs with refreshments being provided in the Church Hall. Regular Sunday worship takes place at 11am. After each service refreshments are served at the back of the church.

Our regular services are:

      First Sunday - Morning Prayer Common Worship

      Second Sunday - Holy Communion Common Worship

      Third Sunday - All Age Service

      Fourth Sunday - Joint service at Kirk Christ - Holy Communion Common Worship

      Fifth Sunday - Holy Communion Common Worship

St. Catherine’s Church was built in 1880 by the generosity of William Milner, a locksmith who moved from Liverpool to Port Erin. He set up many charities to help the poverty stricken fishermen. In memory of his charitable works, Milner's Tower (in the shape of a lock) was erected on Bradda Head.

St Catherine's is one of the four churches in the Parish of Rushen which is situated in the south west corner of the Isle of Man, serving Port Erin, Port St Mary and Cregneash.
