Exe Valley Mission Community
St Catherines church in Withleigh

Welcome to St Catherine, Withleigh

Built by the Carpenter family, and opened in 1847 as a chapel in the parish of Tiverton. The site was formerly that of a medieval chapel of ease, the remains uncovered during excavation for the present building. Extensively repaired and modernised in the 1960s, with lowered ceiling, strip lighting, and a new vestry. The organ is an historically interesting instrument, having some unusual features.  A parish from 1886, and now one of nine in the Exe Valley Team. St Catherine’s is a community church which seeks to care for the members of the community who all regard it as theirs.

There are weekly services, which include Family service, Holy Communion, and Morning Worship (Service of the Word from Common Worship). We also have a fortnightly homegroup – “Walk the Talk”, which takes place on a Monday evening.

A warm Withleigh welcome is extended to all visitors to St Catherine’s.
