Welcome to our website! St Bede’s Roman Catholic Church, built in 1958 and consecrated in 1975, is part of the Diocese of Westminster. We are a small parish, serving the people of the village of Croxley Green and beyond, preaching the Gospel message of Jesus Christ and seeking to serve his people in their spiritual, emotional, physical and material needs. We have excellent relationships with our neighbouring churches, and a listening ear for people of all faiths or none. You will find a warm welcome when you visit us.
We are very proud of our association with St Bede, a great scripture scholar, renowned throughout Europe, and the first systematic historian of the English people. We also have a special devotion to St Theresa of Lisieux, our first patron. She is the saint who made the daily routine of life the source of her holiness, and so inspired ordinary folk to aspire to a deep knowledge and love for God.
