Welcome to St Aidan's. If you have found this website we would like to greet you in the words of Jesus when after his Resurrection he said, “Peace be with you” (John 2:19).

St Aidan’s parish covers most of Coulsdon and is in the Catholic Archdiocese of Southwark. We have a primary school which serves the families of our parish as well as the families of St Mary’s, Old Coulsdon.

We hope you find that this website gives you some information about our Catholic community and its activities as well as inviting you to visit and make yourself known. When Jesus first met two people who were later to become disciples he responded to their enquiry as to where he lived by saying, “Come and see” (John 1:39). He could have just given them the address of his house or drawn a map but instead he gave them an invitation which was the beginning of friendship between them.

The purpose of this website is not just to impart useful information but more importantly to invite you to “come and see”.
