St Lawrence's Catholic church, in the Diocese of Southwark, is a small but vibrant congregation of Catholics drawn from the Eden Valley area. Our church is set back from the High Street on the right hand side as you come from the north end of town, just before you reach the main postal sorting office.
We have some lovely facilities, including a parish Garden of Repose where you are welcome to spend some time in private prayer and contemplation. Whether you are new to the area or just feel the time is right to come back to Church, we'd love to see you.
Saturday evening Mass is 6pm. The main Sunday Mass is at 10:00 and includes hymns. Sunday evening is a quieter Mass, join Father Benedict around the altar for an intimate celebration. For weekday times, please go to the Mass times pulldown.
The parish room known now as St Andrew's is the centre of parish activities. Tea, coffee and cake served every Sunday after 10:00 Mass. Social Activities such as the PaddyJoe night take place here.
