Scratch Choir for Annual Service of Lessons & Carols
We are once again putting together a scratch choir for the
Annual Service of Lessons and Carols ,
which this year is taking place on Friday 23rd December, 17:00 at Leonardskirche.
It would be wonderful to have as many as possible singing with us.

At St. Catherine’s we use the word GIVING in 3 distinct ways:
- Giving allows members and visitors to exercise the stewardship aspect of their discipleship by supporting the church financially. Please note we are a self-supporting church with a negative budget. If you are new to St. Catherine’s or have not yet set up a regular bank transfer, please give what you can online via our virtual collection plate. We also have a Retiring Collection at all services specifically for any visitors and for those who prefer to ‘give’ in cash.
- Giving allows members and visitors to exercise the stewardship aspect of their discipleship by giving time – this can be a regular task or role or occasional or help when it is called for usually via Notices.
- Giving allows the Church itself to exercise its own stewardship by budgeted giving to projects or global areas where needs call for such financial support. For a hint of what we have supported in the past click here
Project this year include: Brot für die Welt and Oxfam and Ukraine support
-we pray for all who need or long for Peace – including communities, churches, nations, marriages, friendships
-we pray for Ukrainians left with significantly reduced lighting and heating due to attacks on energy infrastructure
