Christianity for the Perplexed!

Are there aspects of the Christian faith that you find perplexing?  Are there elements of Christian teaching that seem bewildering, baffling or downright befuddling? Are you mystified by the very idea of faith in the modern world?
If you answer ‘yes’ to any of the above, then help is on offer.  Please contact the vicar by email at vicar@stcatherinestowersey.org.uk or text on 07795 292280.

Preserving our Heritage...
Providing for Future Generations

The five-yearly review of the church's fabric revealed urgent repairs required which are likely to cost in the order of £159,000. At the same time we have ambitious plans to enhance the interior of the church to meet the needs of future generations. The plans include installing an accessible toilet and small kitchenette alongside a new more flexible space at the back of the church. Read more here.
