Welcome to the website for St Catherine's Church, Tranmere.
Verse of The Year 2021 - Romans 12:12, "Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer".
St Catherine’s is open for our 11am service and informal 7pm services on Sundays. The PCC has decided that, from September 12th, singing will begin again and wearing a face covering will now be optional during the service. However, we ask that face coverings are still worn in the building before and after the service (unless you are exempt) while people are moving around. Other COVID measures will continue, including social distancing and hand sanitiser being used on entry and exit. Thank you for your understanding and support in this.
St Catherine’s warmly invites you to three special Christmas services. Please book in by e-mailing our vicar James (firstname.lastname@example.org) and indicating if you would like to be in a socially distanced part of the church (two of our four aisles of pews will be socially distanced, using alternate pews. Places for these are limited).

- Nativity, Sunday Dec 19th, 11am (book in by Thursday, Dec 16th)

We all have a Christmas Eve Communion at 11pm and Christmas Day all-service with Communion (11am). No booking is required for these services.

Safeguarding - PCR2
The Bishop of Birkenhead has written to all clergy to outline details of a new past cases review, known national as PCR2. It is part of the Church's ongoing scrutiny of its handling of past and current safeguarding cases. All parishes are required to respond by checking records and reporting to the review all known cases of concern about the behaviour of clergy and church officers towards children and vulnerable adults.
This an important task and part of the Church’s ongoing scrutiny of its handling of safeguarding files. It is being carried out to ensure our churches are safer places for everyone. More details can be found on Chester Diocese website - https://www.chester.anglican.org/pcr2
Individuals who wish to make representations to PCR2, or who need to come forward with information or make any disclosures regarding church-related abuse, are encouraged to make direct contact with the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser, Pauline Butterfield, on 07703 800031, or call the dedicated telephone helpline - 0800 80 20 20 - operated independently from the Church, by the NSPCC.
