St Catherine’s has a strong tradition of helping others. We strive to follow Christ’s example by sharing our gifts with those in the local community and the world whom it is so easy to forget or neglect: the poor, the widowed, the oppressed and the destitute.
- The collection at our annual Carol Service is split between a local and overseas project. e.g. Brot für die Welt, USPG and also Café Strichpunkt
- At our Harvest Festival we collect non-perishable goods for the Schwäbische Tafel as did our Christmas Socks in 2022.
- The Anglican Centre is used as the base for our Refugee Ministry.
In previous years the BookSale, Bazaar and Carol Service are well-loved dates in the calendar. 2020 saw an end to all that, but we are back with a new format and have so far hosted three Open House events and Hymns & Pimm’s to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee
