Welcome to St Laurence’s

St Laurence Church is the Anglican parish church that has been serving the centre of Catford in south-east London since 1888.

We are open for Sunday worship, and also for private prayer during the week most days during daylight hours. All are welcome. The church is a Covid-secure venue, and there should be very little risk.

Sunday Services
We celebrate the eucharist at 8am and 10am every Sunday. You are very welcome to either.

The 8am is a quiet service without music, celebrated in the main church. There is plenty of space, and is as safe as we can make it.

The 10am is a service with music.We are once more singing in church, but we ask you to continue to wear a face covering, even while singing, to protect other people. You can find the Sunday readings here.

Weekday services
Currently, we have a Wednesday eucharist at 10.30 in the main church, preceded by exposition of the sacrament from 10am.
On Thursdays there is a eucharist in the Lady Chapel at 9.45.
Once a month we have a healing service on a Tuesday evening at 7.30pm.

St Laurence’s on-line
We livestream the eucharist on Facebook and Youtube every Sunday at 10am. Do join us. We also have an Instagram profile and Twitter.
