A big thank you!

The whole parish would like to offer their profound thanks to our long-time parishioners Pat Edgar & Maureen Brown who are both handing on some of their responsibilities they have taken on for the Parish over the past few decades. For over 15years Pat Edgar has worked tirelessly to administer the Church halls, answer the telephones and undertake other secretarial work. For over 10 years Maureen Brown has administered the Gift Aid Scheme and reconciled the parish accounts. These jobs have taken many hours every week and the parish could not have functioned without it. Once again, our deepest thanks.

For all queries regarding Parish accounts, Gift Aid, Weekly envelopes, Standing orders and so on, please email at  & for Parish Centre(s) bookings, please email at OR contact Lavina, Parish Administrator at the Parish office.

Update on Hall Bookings

We have no start date, as yet, regarding the resumption of meetings, or for hiring the hall for parties etc. This includes the continuation of Catechetical Programmes  for first Holy Communion and Confirmation.

The Covid-secure requirements for Halls are complex. Some of the activities of those who regularly hire our Hall involve physical exercise and contact with one another; these are an additional complication.

Like other parishes, the loss of revenue from regular groups and Hall Hiring is having an impact on our parish income  but we can only open when it is safe to do so for all users. Please bear with us.
