The Mission Community

 

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.

Christmas is coming but not before Advent! Advent is a beautiful season and yet often neglected in our hurry to get to Christmas. The days of Advent are fewer than usual this year, which gives an opportunity have a really inspiring and spiritually awakening Advent by taking on and trying something new at the beginning of this Christian year. So start thinking now what that will be and if you need any help or guidance speak to Fr David or Fr Phillip. 

 

Throughout Advent

Sleeping Bags

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.
