After 16 months of time out due to the Covid-19 Pandemic we are slowly starting to open up our social calendar and some of the groups in our family of parishes. We are a vibrant and active parish with plenty going on to suit everyone from weekly groups, monthly social sessions and even bigger events throughout the year. Take a look at the range of activities available in our Parish Groups and check out our Upcoming Events page for information on what we have to offer, whether you are looking for something practical or something creative; to share your skills or to learn something new; or just to do something sociable you will be guaranteed a warm welcome whatever you choose.
It’s the people who make this such a great place to be so let this be the year that you decide to become more active in the life of our parish communities – if you’re not sure on what you would like to do or you would like any further information on any aspect of parish life then please come and talk to us.

Within our community we have many people who possess a wide range of unique gifts and talents which can be seen at work across our parish groups, they are packed full of practical skills to be used at church, home or work but there is always time for a cup of tea and a chat too of course.
We are people that find passion in whatever we do whether it’s singing, knitting, flower arranging or getting handy with a power tool. Come and join us to share the fun or perhaps learn a new skill. Throughout the year we offer a wide range of regular and one-off groups and events so there really is something to suit everyone, whether you prefer a social gathering, a musical evening, a family day, a parish bus trip, a lively discussion group or some quiet time to think and reflect. Have a look at the pictures below for a flavour of the range of things we enjoy.
