Bible Study – there will be a Bible study meeting with Holy Communion at the Anglican Centre tonight – Wednesday 28th March, led by Solomon. The Gospel reading for the Wednesday of Holy Week is John 13:21-32 (see below).

Women’s Group – Our next meeting is on Thursday, 19th April from 10 until 12 in the Anglican Centre. We are planning on repairing the Hymn and Service books. Lauris promised to provide the tape but strong glue and scissors would be useful.  Hope to see you there. Many hands make light work!

Installation of Rev’d. Kara Werner as chaplain of St. Catherine’s. Join us to welcome our new chaplain.

After the service we will be providing refreshments for all those who attend the service.  Any contributions would be very welcome: these should be any kinds of finger foods: sandwiches, savoury biscuits, slices of quiche, mini-pizzas , sausage rolls, national delicacies etc. –  and cakes as well as we will probably run into teatime.  We won’t have space or the facilities to warm up any food or provide seating for everybody for a sit-down meal so finger food is essential. Thank you for your help.

Welcome Book for Kara – with a flat found Kara’s arrival is now much more concrete. We would like to prepare a welcome book for her, introducing her to her new congregation and providing her with a reference so that she can check if she can’t remember the name of the person who spoke to her after the service about a baptism, or the phone number of the person who invited her for coffee. A template can be found here. If you would like to provide an A4 page for this book with your name, that of any relevant family members, maybe a photo, contact details and any information about your family that you would like to share with our new chaplain then please send it to or pass it directly to Frances by 8th April at the latest. This book will be for Kara’s personal use and not for circulation.
