St Katharine's Church, Exbury
As you will be aware, for some time St Katharine's Parochial Council (PCC) has been concerned about the viability and sustainability of St Katharine's. An exciting ecumenical initiative has presented itself. Following discussion at the recent PCC meeting, we have agreed to the Romanian Orthodox Church congregation - who have until recently worshipped in Southampton - sharing our church building. Their congregation will have use of St Katharine's for three consecutive Sundays each month. We shall be reducing our own Sunday services from twice a month to once a month.
At present, we shall retain the 11.15am Holy Communion on the 4th Sunday of the month. This arrangement has been approved by the bishop of Southampton.
The next service for our own congregation will be Harvest Thanksgiving at 11.15am on Sunday 26th September.
