Morning Prayer and Evening Prayer are said publicly at 9.00am and 5.30pm daily except on Sundays (see above). The church is open daily between 8.30am and 11.30am 


We welcome all visitors to our church, on a Sunday there are people sat at the back of church who will help you with any aspect of the church before or during the service. The clergy would love to have the opportunity to speak to you after the service.


Tea, coffee or soft drinks are available after Mass, there is no charge for these refreshments but any donations are always welcome


NOTE: Safeguarding: If you have any concerns regarding the safety of children and others who are vulnerable, regardless of age, you must tell the Duty Priest and/or Fiona Hazeel, the Lay Safeguarding Officer. 



Please feel free to circulate this Bulletin far and wide, if you want extra copies can you please tell Fr David so that the right amount can be printed.



Posada is an old Mexican tradition where young people dressed as Mary and Joseph travelled from house to house asking for a room for the night and telling people about the imminent arrival of Jesus in the weeks leading up to Christmas. On Christmas Eve they would visit the local church to re-enact the nativity and place figures of Mary and Joseph in a crib.Modern day Posada uses figures of Mary and Joseph who travel from place to place. This gives each ‘host’ the chance to create their own celebration in their home, classroom or place in the community, worshipping and reaching out to their communities with the real message of Christmas. Mary and Joseph will start their journey next Saturday evening from St James travelling to various houses before going to the school for the 2nd week of Advent. Please sign up as a host.


Reverse Advent Calendar The basic principle behind this idea is that we give during the weeks of advent rather than receive. For our parish it would seem a good idea for us to use this occasion to make up kits for the homeless. Text Box: Throughout Advent
