Ash Wednesday

Our Mission is to bring people closer to Jesus Christ through His Church. Communities that support and equip people of faith and those who are curious to make disciples in everyday life, parishes that lie at the heart of their local community and serve the people of their community, especially the poor, the isolated and the most vulnerable.

Thank you for visiting our website.

Whether you are cautious, curious, or committed we invite you to find out more about what goes on in your local Catholic community. We’d love you to find a home in a parish near you.

In the parishes of the Catholic Diocese of Portsmouth we try to be a community where people are known and cared for, grow in faith together, and can use their gifts to make our world a better place. Whether you’re just curious about our Catholic faith or totally committed, we would love you to join us, and look forward to meeting you in person.

We want everyone to feel welcome in our church, Catholic or otherwise. We recognise that many people have questions about the meaning of life and we would love you to discover how a relationship with Jesus can help make sense of life, foster friendships, and experience God’s love. As a first step, we invite you to join us for Alpha which we offer both online and in person. Alpha gives you the space to discover answers to the questions you might have.
