At 10.00am each Thursday, we welcome people to come for tea and toast in our lovely church hall. It's a great way to meet new people, chat and enjoy a good brew with delicious chunky toast and a range of home-made jams and marmalades. We have Mass at 9.30am in the church but you don't have to have been to Mass to come along and join us.

Parents and children can meet in our beautiful church hall to 'Stay and Play'! The adults can have a cuppa, some toast and chat to other parents whilst the children are free to play with lots of toys indoors and outside in our children's play area and Fairy Garden. We provide only healthy snacks as OFSTED would require for children and we end with singing nursery rhymes. It's a real fun-packed two hours which is proving to be very popular. There is a small charge of £1.50 to help cover our costs. NOT OPEN BANK HOLIDAYS.

Why not leave the business of the working week at the church door and join us for a short service of Vespers followed by a Low Mass. On the first Friday of the month, this dovetails with our 6.00pm Benediction Service. After Mass, the Blessed Sacrament is exposed for quiet meditation and prayer from 5.30pm until Benediction at 6.00pm.
These Masses are on a rotation. Each Saturday provides a Mass for a different cause: 1st Saturday of the month - Mass for the Dying 2nd Saturday of the month - Mass for the Departed 3rd Saturday of the month - Healing Mass/Mass for the Sick 4th Saturday of the month - Mass of Our Lady 5th Saturday of the month - Mass for Christian Unity/Thanksgiving

Cautious about returning to Church after Lockdown? Out of the habit and dread the thought of a long church service? This Mass could be ideal for you. This Mass is short (35 minutes), has no bells and whistles, no sermon and is usually only attended by a few adults and no children. It's a quiet Mass with no music or singing and you'll be back out of church just after 9am with the rest of your Sunday to enjoy. If you have not been to church for a while, this service is ideal if you want to gently get back in the routine of weekly worship.

Sometimes we just need to say 'sorry'. We cannot assume we are automatically forgiven because that is not the case. We are all sinners, we all need to face our mistakes and bring them to God in penitence and faith that He will forgive us when we ask for His mercy. The priest has been given a share in Christ's authority which He left to His Church to forgive sins in His Name. Hearing the words 'Go in peace. The Lord has put away ALL your sins' can come as a great relief when a burden is too heavy to carry. Confessions are socially distanced and in a private chapel in the church behind closed doors for privacy.
There is a Daily Prayer service 15 minutes before each Mass every day of the week. Friday Prayers focus on the great cost of our salvation as we recall the Passion of Our Lord. Saturdays are traditionally given to Mary and the focus moves to the Mother of God. Night prayer will be live streamed via Facebook excluding Mondays and Sundays at 9pm.
