St Katharine's Bells Restoration: Re-Commissioning Service.
Sunday 17 September at 11am. A special service to celebrate the return to use of our bells following the restoration work.
Set in beautiful Savernake Forest, the parish of St Katharine’s comprises various farms, small hamlets and isolated houses. The church's congregation is more widely based, as it has drawn people from the surrounding area who enjoy St Katharine's Church's beautiful surroundings and less frenetic atmosphere.
Next door, the thriving primary school also serves a far larger area than the parish and has a very warm relationship with the church.
The Victorian building is a fine example of an "Oxford Movement" church. Please see the "About St Katharine's" and "History of St Katharine's Church" pages for more information about our church.
This hidden treasure is worth a journey – you will find a warm welcome. Please click here for location details.

St Katharine's Bells Restoration Appeal
We are delighted to report that our fundraising has reached our preliminary target and work has now begun on the restoration of our bells. Thank you very much indeed to all of you who have so generously contributed to this appeal.
The first phase of the work has now started. Our contractor, Whites of Appleton, has removed the bells and sent them to Whitechapel Foundry for repair and retuning. Work is expected to be completed at the end of the summer. There will be a special recommissioning service, led by the Bishop of Ramsbury, on Sunday 17th September at 11am to celebrate the return to working order of the bells.
Meanwhile, it will be necessary to close access to the church and churchyard periodically during the work for safety reasons. Please look out for the closure signs and do as requested.
