Our Looking

Things seen about our local community

  • The adjacent shops seem to be very active and used by many. Any empty premises seem to be occupied quite quickly.
  • Useful links with schools in the neighbourhood have been made and are being maintained.
  • The Ecumenical links with the Anglicans have been particularly important for the continuing worship of St Katherine's.

Three things we have seen about our church

  • Church is in the centre of the district. Downstairs premises have always been actively used by many groups from the district.
  • Church members have managed and organized an active Youth Club for a number of years - & it continues to thrive.
  • There is a great need to make our premises more accessible to the elderly and disabled (Worship Centre is upstairs).
