Our Chapel lends itself to training days, workshops and meetings. Up to 60 people can be seated in rows or at circular tables and our catering staff will be happy to cater for your event.

As well as the Chapel, other rooms can be hired for meetings and your guests are welcome to stay overnight. We can tailor meals to suit your requirements and most dietary requirements can be met. Unlimited tea and coffee are included. We do not have an alcohol license but you are welcome to provide your own alcoholic drinks.

We have ample car parking on site. Guests coming by train can take a taxi from High Wycombe, Marlow or Henley-on-Thames. We are approximately 35 minutes drive from Heathrow Airport and taxis can be booked by prior arrangement.

Open Day - Saturday 13th July 2024

Our 3rd annual Open Day went ahead, despite the forecasted rain. That didn’t dampen spirits though.

Whilst a fundraising event, the priority of the day is for people to get a sense of what we do here, and that is to provide a peaceful, prayerful space for those wanting to get away from the busyness of life. I think we met that brief.

We were blessed to welcome over 200 people throughout the day (despite the rain), with more than 40 being new to St Katharine’s. It was lovely to hear the quiet bustle of people perusing the gathered stalls, enjoying the grounds, wandering into the Lady Ryder Memorial Garden. Marlow Town Band (after moving indoors because of the weather) brought an hours music in the afternoon, which has always been well received and enjoyed.

Whilst the final figure hasn’t been arrived at yet, we have so far raised £950 and we thank everyone who came along on the day.

The date for 2024 is Saturday 13th July and more details will come out in the New Year but we hope to see you then, if not before.

Christmas Lunch at St Katharine's

We will once again be providing Christmas Lunches through December, making use of produce that has been grown in our very own Lady Ryder Memorial Garden.

Later in the year we will be posting details of the 2023 Christmas events.











Thank you so much for everything that you and your team did for our family yesterday. Everything went so smoothly and everyone said what a wonderful venue St Katharine's was both in terms of food and venue. Your team were absolutely outstanding and made the day very easy for us.
