After several months of work to provide toilets, a kitchen, modern heating system, revised seating and redecoration our Sunday services are to resume at St. Catherine's from November 22nd!! Our midweek, Wednesday communion service will continue to be at St. Francis

There is still some work to be completed at St. Catherine's. The roof is now being totally re-furbished which is why the church is surrounded by scaffolding. Sadly, as our insurers insist that the scaffolding is protected to prevent unauthorised access with the possibility of serious damage / accidents, the churchyard water supply is inaccessible for the time being. We can only apologise for this inconvenience. Depending on the weather and any issues found, we expect the roof to be completed during November. Once the roof is complete and there is no risk of water getting into the building we will arrange for the new carpetting to be laid.

The revised faculty (Diocesan permission) sets a date of June 2017 for the completion of the final phase of the repairs to the building such as the external walls and porch.
