We are part of the Catford (Southend) and Downham Team Ministry that serves the Parish area of Catford, Whitefoot and Downham. There are four churches including The Church of St John The Baptist, within the Team and details of the other three churches are given below.
The Parish Team has a joint Parochial Church Council (PCC) but each church has its own District Church Council (DCC). We celebrate some of the major Festivals as a Team and enjoy various social events together. The Team Clergy work very closely together and often take services in the other churches within the Team.

We are very sad to hear of the death of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, and pray for the repose of his soul. Our thoughts and prayers are with Her Majesty the Queen and the rest of the Royal Family in their grief.
