Welcome to St. Katharine's, Southbourne, with St. Nicholas
A warm welcome to the parish of St Katharine with St Nicholas, Southbourne on Sea.
As many of you are aware, the Prime Minister has instituted a new national Lockdown beginning on Thursday the 5th November. At this stage we understand that this means although Places of Worship may remain open, it will be for Private Prayer only with no acts of Public Worship permitted. We will be opening St Nicholas for one hour from 9am for Private Prayer, and St Katharine at 1030am also for an hour. We will also be streaming a service of Holy Communion from St Katharine at 930am, attended only by those necessary to facilitate the service, including musicians and singers.
The National Lockdown ends at 1201am on the 2nd December 2020.
Please take some time to look around our website, which hopefully will give you an insight into our church family.
We are always delighted to hear from people, so if there is anything you need to know that you cannot find here then please don’t hesitate to get in touch, and we will see if we can answer your question.
Both churches have a deep spirituality, and many people value spending time in them. Unfortunately, as with all Church of England Churches currently, we are only able to open both churches at set times due to the Government's restrictions on public assembly as a result of the Coronavirus situation.
Our weekly notices can be found here:
As a parish we seek to engage with our local community, and to show them the love of Jesus the Messiah in both word and action, and have encouraged our members to support family, friends and neighbours at this difficult time in our national life. Information on supporting local volunteer groups and the 'Together we can' intitative can be found in the Notices section of the website.
We hope you find the resources for prayer and our YouTube channel (link in the menu bar) useful as we continue to pray for all those affected by the Coronavirus pandemic.
Please do join us for Morning prayer on Zoom (8am Tuesday to Sunday), or for a half hour time of informal prayer on Wednesday evenings at 7pm, or on Thursday evenings at 7.30pm. More information can be found by clicking below:
May God bless you all,
Fr Kevin - Vicar
