Children's Liturgy

During term-time, we run Children's Liturgy sessions for youngsters up to and including school year 3 at the 10:15am Sunday Mass. This enables us to provide and explain the day's Gospel in a language that  children will understand and sessions will begin again on Sunday 10th September.


All helpers are DBS checked and the sessions run on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month. New helpers willing to undergo DBS checking are welcome to join our small team. Please speak to Anne Worden.

Our First Holy Communion Program

2023/2024 induction starts in October for Year 3 and above. Please pick up an enrolment form and a copy of the program dates from the Sacristry or email

Do you know of someone who is ill and would like Holy Communion at home? If so, please let Canon Simon Treloar know once you have gained the person's permission to pass on their details. Thank you for your support.
