St Catherine's Church Towersey

We are a friendly and welcoming community meeting at St Catherine's Church, which is situated at the heart of the quiet, picturesque village of Towersey - just a mile from the market town of Thame. We meet weekly on Sundays throughout the year, with special services at Christmas, Easter and other times during the year.

Our vision is to be a strong and welcoming Christian family, making disciples of Jesus Christ and serving the people of Towersey.

Do look around this site find our more about us - or better still come and visit us, we would love to meet you.

Sunday Worship

Our principal services are on Sunday mornings at 9.30. We follow the standard Anglican forms of worship in a relaxed and informal style. The typical pattern of services is:

  • First Sunday is a simple form of morning worship to start the month.
  • Morning Worship on the second Sundays of each month is an accessible service of morning prayer.
  • Parish Communion is a service of Holy Communion from Common Worship. It is held the fourth Sunday of each month

Please check What's On for upcoming service details as some months may vary.

Sunday Tea at St Catherine's

On the third Sunday of most months there is no service in the morning but you are warmly invited to Sunday Tea at St Catherine's Church.

There's fresh tea, good coffee and cakes on offer and we open from 3.30 to 5pm with a short Bible Focus at 4.15pm. See What's On for the date of the next Sunday Tea.

Growing in the the Christian Life

The seasons of Lent and Easter provide an opportunity to dig deeper into what it meant for Jesus to become obedient to death—even death on a cross. To help us grow in the Christian faith we have an informal Bible study group that meets fortnightly. We will be reading and reflecting together on the final chapters of John’s gospel.

Do come and join us, for one evening or for the whole series, as we explore these chapters together. We meet at Black Horse Cottage, Manor Road from 8pm to 9.30pm for Bible study and discussion followed by a short time of reflection and prayer. View more details.
