History:
St Katharine's, (dedicated to Katharine of Egypt, Saint and Martyr) was built of local stone in 1867, although services had been held as early as 1825 by the Revd Francis McCleland, Colonial Chaplain stationed in Port Elizabeth. The Revd Philip Copeman was appointed to Uitenhage in 1847, but it was only when the Revd William Llewellyn arrived in 1856 that the congregation grew large enough to justify the building of the church. A feature of the church in Uitenhage down the years has been the ecumenical outreach, fostered by the Anglican priests. A total of 41 clerics in holy orders have been associated with the parish. The Church Hall proved to be too small to cope with the growing parish, and a new complex, referred to as "The Abundant Life Centre", was built recently to make ample provision for any future growth.
