We are delighted to tell you we will be re-opening St Katharine's for worship on Easter Day, the 4th of April, at 10am. We will still need to observe social distancing and be masked (unless we have a medical condition which prevents this) but it will be a joy for us to gather and celebrate Christ's resurrection and how it continues to transform us and our life together and the life of our community.

For April we will have a live service at St Katharine's on a fortnightly basis (the 4th and 18th of April at 10am). This is to both manage the workload of providing our continuing mixed economy of online worship and to stand in solidarity with All Saints which is not yet able to re-open safely. From May we hope to return to the pattern of live services at St Katharine's every Sunday. We continue to pray for our community and our world as it struggles with the pandemic and we look forward to our worship together at church or at home. You are very welcome to contact us as we continue to serve the community. Please check the parish website for details of online Sunday and weekday services.

Due to the current Covid Pandemic All Saints and St Andrew’s remain closed for the time being.

You will continue to find simple Ways of Worship at Home in the News-sheets accessible on the website for all those for whom shielding and isolating are still necessary and with whom we all remain in unity and prayer.

Rev'd Ben Brown & Rev'd Mark Pullinger
