Deacon Tony reflects: Reaching out to help

This year has had such a devastating effect on people throughout the world. Today’s Gospel urges us to reach out and help in any way we can, even if we are stuck at home.


We’re the Catholic Church in Central, North and East Basingstoke, Hampshire.

Whether you’re visiting our churches or watching our services on the web, we aim to be a welcoming and active community.

We have a wide range of ministries and activities for people of all ages. We’re proud of our Catholic faith in the Risen Christ and keen to share it with you.

Watch live

All services at St Bede’s are streamed live on this website from our webcam.
