It is essential that you contact Aileen to be given a PIN number so that you will be able to turn off the alarm system which is now installed.


Pastoral Groups

The Parish has 12 Pastoral Groups, each with a Group Leader. Groups meet regularly for prayer and fellowship with one group leading the way in having Sunday Lunch together. This structure means that every member of the Parish has a point of reference in a small group setting – rather than only in the Parish as a whole. One focus for the groups is lay leadership (in other words, not the Priest, Curate, Assistant Priests etc) so it really is a ‘grass-roots’ model of coming together as a community. Ultimately groups will gather around specific themes and explore opportunities together. If you would like further information or to join one of our groups, please contact Fr Nicholas Wallace.
