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 in Oxfordshire
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.
Do look around this site find our more about us - or better still come and visit us, we would love to meet you.
We hold monthly services in church at 9.30am on the third Sunday of each month. There is a balance between services of Morning Worship and Holy Communion through the course of the year. Read on for more details.
Additional morning services are held at St Catherine’s at key times of the year such as Christmas, Easter, Pentecost, Harvest and Remembrance Sunday. Read on to see what's coming up.
On Sundays when there is no service in Towersey the St Catherine’s congregation worships together with others at St Mary’s in Thame at 10.15am.
Prayers of the Heart
Group Bible studies exploring a selection of Psalms
Joy. Anger. Distress. Hope. Trust. These are some of the feelings expressed in the Psalms. They can guide us as we seek to pray through our deepest emotions. In these three sessions we explore a selection of Psalms to discover all they can teach us about prayer in and through the rich diversity of life’s experiences.
We meet online fortnightly from 8pm to 9.15 for Bible study and discussion followed by a short time of reflection and prayer. For details email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Responding to the Climate Challenge
Looking after the world, in all the different forms that takes, is a core part of what it means to be a follower of Jesus – as a church and as individuals. St Catherine's, Towersey aims to fulfil that responsibility by playing our part in responding to the current challenge to reverse the rising global temperature.
St Catherine's has taken considerable steps to reduce our carbon emissions. Read more here
