Welcome to the website for St Catherine's Church, Tranmere.
Verse of The Year - Hebrews 12:1-2, "Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith".
The government have given permission for places
of worship to reopen for services from July 4th. This week both the
government and Church of England published their guidance on this. The
standing committee of St Catherine’s are now reviewing the guidance to
assess when St Catherine’s can safely reopen again. However, we will not
be open this Sunday, July 5th. We will continue to have our audio service
available this Sunday.
Hello to our visitors. We hope you are well and coping with our current situation. A little reminder that our service and sermon audios will be up on our website each week. You can check them out here
Also a reminder that we are praying for our local community at this time. If you would like to send us any prayer requests for you and your family, do please email our vicar here

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.
