Welcome to our Parish

A very warm welcome to the web site of The Parish of Egham, incorporating the Catholic churches of Our Lady of the Assumption, Englefield Green (EG) and St John of Rochester, Egham Hythe (EH). Our Parish Priest is Father Chris Spain and his contact details can be found here.


Advent and Christmas times and activities in our parish are available to download here– to stick on your fridge or notice board. There are one or two new initiatives, so please read carefully and support whatever you can. Hard copies are also available in both churches.


As you may have read in the recent Weybridge Deanery Newsletter, Bishop Richard has held meetings around the diocese in recent weeks to look at the future of our Mission and Ministry. He asked all of us to reflect on a series of questions and these have now been formatted into a simple questionnaire [which is being distributed to all parishioners this weekend]. Please return your responses next weekend or fill in the online version, which is available here . We also invite you to discuss it at home, to share it with friends, to discuss it in parish groups and to encourage each other to take part in this important step in formulating a response for Bishop Richard ahead of his return visit on January 29, when he wants to hear our vision for the way ahead..


The insurance company  have appointed The RAW Group, who have been appointed by the insurance company dealing with the damage to St John of Rochester, have provided an updated timetable for the work to remove asbestos from the site. The updated timetable from the RAW Group can be found here.

  1. Hello,
    I’m contacting you from Tipperary in Ireland. I’m trying to find out if my parents were married in one of your parish churchs and was wondering if you can check the register for me. I think they were married in St. John of Rochester church.
    My mothers maiden name was Helen Fitzgerald and my fathers name is Joseph Patrick Graham. They were married on the 25th November 1967.
    As it’s coming up to their 50th wedding anniversary, we their children were going to send them on a little trip back to visit the church where they got married.
    I would really appreciate your help Sally, looking forward to hearing from you.

    Kind regards

    Valerie Condon
