The manor of St Catherine belonged to Prior Cantlow of Bath Abbey in medieval times. The church was remodelled by him around 1490, with the tower being added in 1503, and underwent further changes in 1704, 1846 and 1880. The interior includes a 12th-century font and a 15th-century pulpit.

The parish is part of the benefice of Batheaston with St Catherine within the archdeaconry of Bath. St Catherine's has been part of the parish since it was annexed in 1258.
