St Catharine's Church, Nottingham, was a parish church in the Church of England in Nottingham.


The ecclesiastical parish was formed in 1884 out of the parishes of St Mary, St Mark, St Luke and St Paul. The foundation stone for St Catharine's was laid on 23 July 1895 and built to designs of the architect Robert Charles Clarke. It was situated on the St Ann's Well Road.

The church was consecrated on 26 November 1896. It was built, in the Early English style, of Bulwell stone with Bath stone dressings, and consisted of chancel, nave, south chapel and a bell turret. The living was a vicarage in the gift of the Bishop of Southwell.

On 16 August 1946 a fire damaged part of the roof of the church and vestry. Due to the post war restrictions on building materials, it was not until May 1947 that the church received a licence to repair the roof.

St Catharine's was declared redundant in 1980 but united with St Mary's Church, Nottingham, and services continued until 2003. The church was then sold by the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham. Christ-Citadel International Church acquired the building in 2007.
