Check out the activities below and ring / email if you’d like to get involved. You don’t have to be an expert – no one is – we’re all just willing helpers!
Children’s Liturgy / Little Church
- working alongside the catechists to help nursery / primary school age children to understand the gospel message each week through a range of activities: craft work / singing / story-telling. This takes place during 9.30am Mass on Sundays – except for the 1st Sunday of the month.
- Singing is another form of praying, plus it’s been medically proven to aid health and well-being. You don’t need to have a wonderful voice, nor do you have to be able to read music. Help is provided. There’s no solo work – just enthusiasm and a love for music. We sing at every first Sunday of the month. and for special feasts / occasions eg 1st Communion, Easter and Christmas. Come and give it a go - you'll be made most welcome!
Preparing food / drink for coffee mornings
- The first Sunday of every month, after 9.30am Mass

- Volunteers visit the housebound to offer company, prayers - and tea and biscuits!
