St Catherine's, Sedgehill

Sedgehill is the smallest of the Benefice parishes, and as a village, very spread out. First-time visitors often get lost, but we try to make up for this by organizing lots of events that bring us – and anyone else who wants to join in – together. Dedicated to St Catherine in 1395, St. Catherine’s is an understated, beautiful church with wonderful views to the north. It really does seem as if the peace of the Lord is with us when we congregate there.
