'That's My Donkey'. St Katharine's is delighted to be hosting this wonderful puppet show on Saturday 24 March at 3pm, the day before Palm Sunday. It is a very special experience which will be enjoyed by children and adults alike.

Agape Service. On Maundy Thursday (29th March) at 7.30pm we will again be holding our Agape Service. This is a Holy Communion service celebrated in the context of an informal meal. It is open to everybody but it helps for catering purposes if you'd let us know if you're coming. Please email:

Good Friday. The Hour at the Cross service at 2pm on Good Friday is a contemplative service at which we pause from the business of our lives to quietly think about the crucifixion of Our Lord.

Service of Light at Tidcombe (6pm). The service this year will include the performance of a choral work called The Visit to the Sepulchre, composed by Edward Lambert who lives in the parish of Tidcombe.

Easter Sunday - Family Communion at 9.30am. The service will again be followed by our popular Easter Egg Hunt for our younger members.


A Hidden Treasure


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.
