|There is a growing and vibrant community of worshippers at St. Catherine’s Church, Port Erin. The church benefits from being able to seamlessly combine both contemporary worship (provided by a music group)and traditional forms of worship on the organ. During the Summer months the church organises weekly concerts given by local musicians and choirs with refreshments being provided in the Church Hall.
Our main Sunday services are Common Worship and begin at 11am and these are
1st Sunday Morning Prayer
2nd Sunday Holy Communion
3rd Sunday All Age Service (non-Eucharistic)
4th Sunday Holy Communion
After each service there is fellowship (over a cup of coffee) at the back of church
In addition, on the 1st and 3rd Sunday beginning at 8am there is a said BCP Holy Communion service that is attended by a small number of faithful worshippers.
We hold Messy Church once a month http://www.rushenparish.org.uk/regular-events/messy-church/
Our church hall is available for hire. http://www.rushenparish.org.uk/about-our-churches/church-halls/
We are an ordinary group of people from different ethnic groups, walks of life and age groups, united by a common faith in our Lord Jesus Christ`s death and resurrection.
We are an Independent Evangelical Church.
A Church – because we are a group of Christians who gather together to praise and worship God. Evangelical – because we believe in the good news that men and women may be brought into an eternal relationship with God through trusting in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Independent – because we are free of denominational or any other outside control.
We are a Reformed Church.
We believe in the teaching of the Bible sometimes called the “doctrines of grace” or Calvinism.
We believe that our responsibility is to tell everyone that forgiveness of sin and an eternal relationship with God comes by faith in Jesus Christ alone, not by anything we are or can do.
We are not a “Charismatic” Church because we believe that the Bible is complete. Therefore, there are no longer Prophets & Apostles, and the gifts God once used to speak to people, such as prophecy and tongues, have ceased. But we most certainly believe in the vital ministry of the Holy Spirit and recognise it is by His working in us that spiritual progress will come.
