The 教堂 at St Catharine's is a place w在这里 all are welcome.
教堂 can be a way to make 朋友 and meet new people, and discover another way of belonging - 教堂 is a place w在这里 you can come as you are, knowing that you will be accepted just as you are. It can be a place w在这里 you nurture your spiritual life, pray, worship and encounter God. It can be the place w在这里 you examine your own values and work out how to live well in a complex world. Or it can simply be a place w在这里 you come in to shelter from the sun or the rain and spend some time in peace and quiet.
Catz has a lively and active 教堂 community that welcomes people from different backgrounds and traditions. I hope getting involved both encourages and challenges you in your journey of life and faith. You are welcome to get involved in the 教堂 community, whether or not you are used to attending a church.
教堂 services have continued in various different ways during the pandemic, with a combination of in-person, 转播画面, and pre-recorded acts of worship, and it has been lovely welcoming people to each of these, in whatever way they feel comfortable. 教堂 remains open as a place of peace and quiet, and time to reflect in a busy day, and a place of comfort and solace in difficult times.

Every morning I pray for the College community, those in need, the nation and the world. This pattern of daily prayer is part of how I care for the life and 幸福 of the College community and beyond. You are welcome to ask me to pray for something or someone specific by emailing chaplain@caths.凸轮.ac.uk.
I usually pray a simple service of morning prayer in 教堂 each weekday at 8.30, and you are welcome to join me either regularly or occasionally if you would like to. T在这里 is a podcast version of the same service available 在这里.
