Forthcoming Events

St Mary's Patronal Festival will be held at St Mary the Virgin on Sunday 12th August 2018 at 10:00am.  The theme for this service is "Being Born" and there will be a special collection for the Midwifery Unit at the Royal Berkshire Hospital.  All are welcome to attend.  Please note there will be no separate service at St Catherine's on that day.

You are very welcome to St Catherine Bearwood, whether you come as a visitor to look at our lovely church, to pray where generations of people have prayed before you, or looking for a church to make your spiritual home. We are glad to have you with us.
