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 Hugh Flower and his contact details can be found here.

Saturday Evening Mass

Please be aware that from Saturday 5th November, the 6pm Mass moves to St John’s for the winter period. If you need a lift please speak to each other to arrange.

Tea & Coffee after 11am Mass

You may not be aware, but by meeting in The Jurgens Centre each Sunday after the 11am Mass and buying a tea or coffee, you are actually supporting the charity St Joseph’s African Aid.  SJAA is a small charity helping to transform the lives of ordinary people and children in Africa. Please take a look at the SJAA website to see the good work they are doing and most importantly, please come along after Mass, have a tea or coffee (maybe even a cake or biscuit) and continue to give your support.

  2. Why is the Church of the Assumption not been painted its looking very scruffy spoils the church

    • Hi Linda,
      As I understand it, when the Church of the Assumption was last painted, the materials used were not what they should have been. Deacon Aidan would be able to give you a more complete answer, but we are left with the situation that repairing the current state of the church requires a significant amount of money.
      We are currently having a parish-wide consultation on our two churches and how we use them to best serve the parish in the future. Until that consultation has finished, I don’t believe we will be undertaking repairs to either church.
      Regards,
      John
