NEW INITIATIVE STARTING 6th MARCH

We are planning to introduce Connect Groups! What are Connect Groups? They are gatherings where people meet to support each other spiritually and practically, with discussion, prayer and worship. Initially there are two leaders who help others to grow, so that new leaders and new prayer champions develop, but the groups are run by everybody for everybody and every opinion and person is a valued and valuable part of the group. The initial focus of the first Connect Group will be the Prayer Course. This is because prayer is central to our Christian lives and to our mission in the Parish. Prayer is also challenging so it makes sense to learn more about the different types of prayer and how we can improve our
communication with God.

The initial group will run from 9 15 a m to 11 a m on Friday mornings, starting on Friday, 6th March with a shared breakfast, and will meet every two weeks. If you are interested in joining a Connect Group, whether on a Friday morning or another time, please CLICK HERE to register your interest. Finally, please do invite other people you know who might be interested. All are welcome.

Lent Course w/c 2nd March

To register for this course, please click here.


Scripture read in the liturgy and prayerfully in the Christian community is one of the privileged ways in which Christ continues to be present among us, drawing us more deeply into the mystery of his love. As part of getting ready for Easter we are inviting anyone who is interested in a deeply spiritual preparation for Easter or in meeting together to read the bible prayerfully to join one of the Loving the Word groups that will run on weekday evenings from 2nd March. Due to the success of the Advent programme we would now like to run a fourth (or even a fifth!) group but need a group leader or joint leaders to facilitate these groups. Please contact Adrian Wyn-Griffiths on 07802 445030 if you are interested in helping out.
