Who we are
Our common vision, as part of the Oxford Diocese, is for a more Christ-like Church: contemplative, compassionate and courageous for the sake of God’s world. A church more like Jesus and the Lord we serve.
The focus of our ministry in Towersey is to witness to the love of God and the hope that comes through faith in Jesus Christ.
What we believe
If you're wondering what we're about at St Catherine's or what the message of the Christian faith is, put simply it's all about Jesus! We celebrate the remarkable news of what Jesus has done for us and how we respond to that. Turn up the volume and click below for a quick summary.

Andy McCulloch is Team Vicar for Thame and Towersey. He is married to Heather and they have three teenage children, Cameron, Kathryn and Kane.
Please contact Andy for any pastoral matters.
St Catherine's relies on the support of church members to pay for the costs of our vicar and to support the routine running costs of the church. We encourage church members to give regularly through the Parish Giving Scheme. If you would like to join this scheme or to give regularly in other ways please contact Keith Civval via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Proceeds from the Church Fete and other fundraising activities are used to meet maintenance costs of the church building and churchyard and other local organisations. We are very grateful to all those who support these activities in so many ways.
Full details of the church activities and finances can be found in our Annual Report, which can be read or downloaded from this link.
Grants outside the Parish
The church allocates a proportion of its income to charitable activities outside the parish. In 2022 we made grants to:
Scripture Union to support its work with children and young people across the country
Wycliffe Bible Translators to support the work of Bible translation in the remotest parts of the world
Tearfund to support their work to reduce poverty in the areas of greatest need.
