English Martyrs Catholic Church is part of the Archdiocese of Southwark. By virtue of our location, we are host to people from over forty nationalities. The church has been on its present site since 1893. At the moment the parish has two priests who minister to the needs of the parishioners. The website is aimed to provide information about our mass times, latest news, the sacraments, schools, office hours and other relevant details.

R.C.I.A (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults)
- Have you been coming to Mass for a while, even coming up for a blessing at mass, but are not Catholic?
- Been thinking about becoming a Catholic for some time but never got around to doing anything about it?
- Married to a Catholic, but not yet made a religious commitment of your own?
- Baptised, but not active in a Church, or find yourself wanting more?
Been a Catholic all your life, but never celebrated all of the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, First Communion)?
- Do you have a non-Catholic husband, wife, family member or friend who would like to know more about the Catholic faith? Sometimes, those of us who have been Catholic our whole lives forget to offer this information to others who may be interested in becoming Catholic.
If you or anyone would like to join us, please come along. The group meets up every Monday at 7:30 pm at the Church.
For further information, please contact the Parish Office or Fr. Gregory.

Social Events Group
The group organizes social events to help our Parishioners make friendships and helps to raise money for the Parish by arranging Film afternoons/nights, Bingo and Quiz nights, Christmas fayres, concerts and many more!
The Church Choir
Our choir sings at 9:00 am Sunday Mass and performs Christmas and Summer concerts, the Confirmation and First Holy Communion ceremonies. The choir also sings at additional services during Christmas and Easter. For example at Easter, the choir sings throughout the Tridium including ceremonies on Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and the vigil Mass on Easter Saturday evening. The choir can be hired to perform at weddings, funerals and other special events.
Sunday Children Liturgy (term time)
The group is for children from reception to year 2 – where they learn the word of Lord and join the Holy Mass at the offertory.
Sunday Parent and Toddler Liturgy (term time)
This is the group for more younger children who wish to attend with their parents to learn about our Lord. These sessions are appropriate with arts/craft activities (songs included).
Our crafts group meets every other Sunday after 9.00 am Mass. It’s a friendly group. Membership is free and all crafts and abilities are most welcome. Come to learn or to share!
