Congratulations …. to our youngsters who made thief First Holy Communion yesterday! The three Masses were very special! A big thanks to Christin Murray and the excellent band of catechists who have been helping her this year!

Today is World Mission Sunday….. we are asked to support missionaries who work alongside communities that are poor or in need. It is the Pope’s own charity to support world mission. There will be a retiring collection today. You can visit Missio’s website to set up a single gift or direct 

Numbers at Mass continue to increase, which is encouraging! But we do have a limit to the number of people that can be seated. It is important to sign in if you intend coming to Mass so that we can keep an eye on the numbers attending.

A big ‘thanks’ to those who have been acting as stewards. We could do with a few more. Do contact the parish office if you are able to help.

Creation for KIDS



Welcome to St Teresa's Catholic Church, Beaconsfield

St Teresa's Church is located in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire in the United Kingdom and is situated opposite Bekonscot Model Village - a local tourist attraction. To find us couldn't be easier - just follow the signs to the Model Village and they will lead you right into our car park, which visitors to Bekonscot are also permitted to use.

The church was built in 1926, the year after St Therese of Lisieux was canonised, and so was one of the first churches in England to be dedicated to her. It is built in neo-gothic style which gives it a traditional atmosphere as you can see from the pictures of the interior. But it is small enough to feel homely and, we hope, welcoming.

Our most illustrious parishioner was Gilbert Keith Chesterton. Many of the artefacts in the church are associated with him - including a statue of Our Lady - and the tower end of the church with its Martyrs Chapel was completed as a memorial to him.

Whether for a short visit or a long stay, we hope you will enjoying being part of our 'living community of faith".

Please make yourself at home, and if you have any comments, questions or thoughts, please
