Traditional Anglo-Catholic parish with a friendly and welcoming congregation of all ages. S. Helen's is a wonderful medieval building. Children and young families are welcome and we provide a creche and children's club every week. We have a small and committed choir who practice each week and are always looking out for new members. The New English Hymnal is used and an anthem sung each week. A full liturgical calendar is observed, along with a daily mass.
One of our strenths is a full and active social life and good pastoral care of our people.Our Beavers,Cubs,Scouts,Rainbows, Brownies and Guides have a good membership and active progammes. Our Youth Centre is open each evening. The elderly enjoy lunch clubs and weekly bingo sessions. The Parish is a memberof Forward in Faith and has passed resolutions A, B & C."We are moving foward with a vision for unity and truth".
