Dear Brothers and Sisters,

May the name of the Lord be praised both now and forever.
As we enter the New Year, we thank God for the blessings of the last year 2021 and for the privilege of witnessing yet another New Year – the year 2022. We are happy that we are alive celebrating this despite the challenges of 2021.
We have every reason to be grateful to God for his mercies! With King David, we declare ‘‘who are we Lord? What is our lineage that you have led us thus far’’? (2Sam17:16).
My dear brothers and Sisters, I aware that for many of us, 2021 was a very challenging year – challenging because of the dreaded Covid 19. Many suffered the pain of the lockdown; some lost their jobs, the sick and housebound passed through the most agonizing loneliness. Many lost their beloved family members and friends.
However, brothers and sisters, despite the challenges of 2021, it has come and gone. It has entered the annals of history. It has entered into metaphysical oblivion, never to come again in history. It has come and gone and so we lift our hands and wave goodbye to 2021 as we welcome 2022.
I therefore, invite you to march into the year 2022 with trust and confidence. Yes, march into this year with trust in God who cares for us and who is interested in our wellbeing. I make a prophetic declaration that 2022 will be for all of us a year of profound experience of God’s blessing. God bless you all. Happy New Year.

Welcome to the website of the 
Church of the English Martyrs

“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope”. Jeremiah 29:11

The Catholic Church of the English Martyrs is situated at 4, Vicarage Lane, Horley, Surrey and is a parish of the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton.

As a parish family, we endeavour to share our faith-story and the experiences that make up our daily lives, so that together we care for and support one another while at the same time being open to the life and mission of the wider Christian community in Horley.

We are the closest catholic church from Gatwick airport. Visitors are always welcome to the church.

Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:27.
