Keeping us all safe

Coronavirus restrictions have eased across England. However, we will still be asking you to to book to attend Sunday Mass, wear face masks and maintain social distancing at St Bede’s for now. This will help us keep vulnerable members of our community safe. We’ll review the situation once we have received guidance from our diocese.

Watch live

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

Some of our Masses from Holy Ghost are streamed via Zoom.

Wherever we are, we are one community together at prayer.

Sunday Afternoon tea

Join our parishioners for conversation, prayer and catch-up on Zoom every Sunday

Mass and Private Prayer

Sunday Masses 9am, 11am, 6pm at St Bede’s church

To meet social distancing requirements, you need to book a place for these Masses:

If you no longer need a ticket, please cancel so others can attend. To help our volunteer welcomers take a full part in the Mass, please try to arrive 15 mins before Mass starts.

Other Masses are first-come first-served.

Our churches are currently closed for private prayer due to Coronavirus restrictions.

Deacon Tony reflects: sheep of the flock

We all need to find quiet time with God, how can we do this in 2021? How can we avoid becoming lost sheep? How do we stay within God’s flock?

Deacon Tony reflects: God equips the called

Living as a Christian means that we have responded to the call. God does not care whether we feel worthy, God will provide. God equips the called.

Deacon Tony reflects: the call of faith

How does our faith match up to the people in the Bible? Are we like Thomas, needing to see something in the flesh to believe? Do we believe that God changes the bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Christ?

Deacon Tony reflects: Do not be afraid; only have faith

Jesus shows compassion and love, he rewards those who believe in Him. He takes away our fears when we show faith in him.
