A warm welcome to the parish of St Katharine with St Nicholas, Southbourne on Sea.
Please note that you currently need to book a seat to attend Sunday worship due to limited space because of COVID19 Regulations. There are no tickets required for the Wednesday evening Mass at St Katharine which is a first come, first serve basis -7.30pm each week.
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 unable to open for Public Worship due to the Government's restrictions on public assembly due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
From Sunday 5th July, Public Worship resumed at both churches. You do need to pre-book a ticket for Sunday worship before you come, as we are very limited on numbers we can accomodate due to social distancing, which remains for Places of Worship at 2 Metres. Full details of how you can book can be found by clicking the link below:
We will also be trialling hosting a service of Holy Communion on Wednesday evenings at 7.30pm at St Katharine. This will not be ticketed and will be on a first come, first serve basis.
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 Christ 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
