Home and latest

Our parish wide heartfelt thanks to Fr Sidon and Fr Carrol for saying the first mass at Sacred Heart on Sunday 9th.

In wonderful news, Fr Sidon will be saying Mass every Sunday at 1:30pm and on Tuesdays at 10:30am for a bit, in Fr Reg continues to be absent from the parish. With our thanks, we look forward to coming together (at a safe distance) at Mass again.

We have put together this quick reminder of the guidance to follow when coming to church; please remember to wear a face covering following latest guidance. There is more comprehensive guidance on social distancing / hygiene in place issued by the diocese.


Sacred Heart Sacred Heart Church is now open for private prayer and Mass at the times below.

Please note that the time for the church to be open on Sunday is different from usual Sunday mass time. This is to allow people to hear mass online, as many of us have been doing during lockdown, and then come to the church for private prayer.

Church Opening times:

Tuesdays from 11th August onwards: 10:30am Mass

Thursdays: 10am -11am Private Prayer

Sundays from 16th August onwards: 1:30pm Mass

With thanks to volunteers who have come forward to help open and close the church and remain on hand during the hour of prayer. For the church to continue to open, we really need more volunteers to open and close the church going forward: two volunteers per session. If you can help, however occasionally, please contact Pauline in the parish office at teddington@rcdow.org.uk

Message from Cardinal Nichols

From 4th July churches can open for Mass. Whilst Scared Heart Church remains open for private prayer only in Fr Reg’s absence, Cardinal Nichols has shared this message in preparation for the celebration of Mass in church again.
