Morning Prayer with Churches Together

After the Churches Together away day last year, it was decided to build on relationships between the churches by praying together and we have established a routine of praying Morning Prayers together on morning day each week.

During February these services will take place at the United Reform Church, Caterham Valley, at 8.30am on Thursdays.  

All are welcome!

The Douglas Brunton Centre

Food, Fun and Support: We provide a range of services for older and vulnerable people in the district to help them remain independent and active and prevent social isolation. With winter, and shorter days, many older or vulnerable people need that little bit of extra support and we offer services to residents in their own home or at our centre for older people in Caterham.

A warm welcome awaits you at the Douglas Brunton Centre in Caterham where members can enjoy companionship, a hot lunch, light snacks and various activities including exercise classes, arts and crafts, bingo and indoor bowls.

The centre also hosts the successful Men in Sheds project bringing together men to participate in small DIY projects, often for the benefit of the community, such as making planters, bird boxes and bug hotels.

We also run Meals on Wheels, providing a hot lunch home delivery service Monday to Friday and frozen meals for the weekend. Clients can also order a cold tea to be delivered with their lunch.

For more information about the Douglas Brunton Centre or about Meals on Wheels please call on 01883 347230 or alternatively send an e-mail to:

Community Alarm: Would you like the reassurance of knowing someone would be there at the touch of a button were you to fall or need help in your home?

If you want to know more, call 01883 722000 or send an e-mail to  

Hall for Hire: Are you looking for a convenient venue in Caterham for a party, meeting or exercise class? The modern and well-maintained Douglas Brunton Centre offers a range of room types from a small interview/consultation room through to a hall which can seat up to 50 people for a meal and includes a wooden dance floor. There is also a fully equipped commercial kitchen, free WiFi and ample parking.  Evening and weekend lettings are available.
