If you want to worship in glorious Savernake Forest, St Katharine’s Church is for you! We welcome everyone, regardless of background or culture, offering a mix of services with emphasis on traditional forms. We enjoy a reputation for staging high-quality festivals that are open to all and look to provide services in fresh ways, such as Celtic Evensongs. 

Instead of our usual list of services being displayed on the right of this page, there are details of alternative service options which we hope you may find useful.
