One theme each Weekday Mass

On ferias the Lectionary gives us two readings which are unconnected. In order to help the celebrant and congregation take away a message for the day, I have found it helpful to find one single idea arising from the two passages of scripture given for the day - One Theme Each Weekday Mass. - Fr Anthony Plummer

New Parishioners


Please take a Parish Directory Leaflet (light blue). Ask a Welcomer. Also, complete Parish Registration & Gift Aid Forms, at church entrance & return them to the Presbytery letter box at 9 Crescent Gardens.

There is usually at least one person to welcome people as they come into Sunday mass. Please make yourself known to them or to the priest. After the 10.30 a.m. Mass ALL are invited into the hall for a cuppa and chat. This is an easy way of getting to know fellow parishioners or just arranging dates with the priest.

For more information see our Parish directory.


Gift aid and standing orders

Please consider joining the gift aid scheme and also setting up a standing order in favour of Christ the King. If you are a UK taxpayer, Gift Aid is a wonderful way to make your offertory donation more valuable to Christ the King. Standing order forms make it even easier to make a regular contribution to the parish.

Parish Safeguarding team

The Archdiocese of Southwark is committed to the safety and welfare of children and vulnerable adults. The Diocese co-operates fully with CSAS, the Catholic Safeguarding Advisory Service, which aims to help the Church become an example of best practice in the Safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults, and develop a "culture of vigilance" to ensure that children and vulnerable adults in our care are kept safe from harm.

If you have any worries or concerns about Safeguarding please email either Celine Duckworth at wimbledonparksg1@safeguardrcaos.org.uk or Simon Cowdry at wimbledonparksg4@safeguardrcaos.org.uk or alternatively ring/text 07565 141 281.

Reporting abuse

If you are concerned about the welfare of a child or adult at risk, do not delay in contacting the police, using 999 if a child or adult is believed to be in immediate danger.

It is the policy of the Catholic Church in England and Wales to report all allegations of abuse to statutory authorities, regardless of whether the abuse occurred recently or in the past, or whether the accused person is living or deceased.

If you are in any role within the Catholic Church in England and Wales, you must refer allegations directly to the safeguarding office for your diocese or religious congregation, or directly to the Police.

If you are a member of the public, please refer allegations directly to the police and also to the safeguarding office in your diocese. You can contact the Archdiocese of Southwark Safeguarding Office by telephoning 0207 261 1606 or via email at safeguardingoffice@rcaos.org.uk.

Return to Mass

GOOD NEWS. The Bishops of England and Wales now believe that the reasons which have prevented Catholics from attending Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation no longer apply. So, from June 4th 2022, we are obliged to worship God at Mass on Sundays and Holydays of Obligation. We look forward to seeing you unless, of course, there are other reasons, such as health, why you cannot join us.

COVID-19 - latest guidance: Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales - Guidance for Churches from 28 January 2022.pdf.


IMPORTANT: If you have a loved one go into hospital, please let the CATHOLIC chaplain know.
