Church Cleaning

Our church cleaning service is run by volunteers. Whether you are a congregation or community member, if you have time to lend a hand in maintaining a clean and welcoming environment you can contact us here

Repository

The Repository is manned by volunteers on a rota system and is open before and after both Masses on Sunday in St Teresa’s and before and after Mass at 6.30pm on Saturday in St John’s.

Contact us here if you would like to volunteer in helping at the Repository.

Sacristan

The Sacristan’s primary duty is to help the priest in various ways. He/she prepares and oversees the articles and elements required for the Liturgy so that all the members of the worshipping community can take their full, conscious and active part in the liturgical celebration. The sacristan knows the meaning and purpose of the liturgy as well as the needs of the particular liturgical assembly. The church building must be opened and lit, cleaned and decorated for the celebration. Bread and wine must be in place, vessels and vestments available, linens in order, seating arrangements made, microphones set, books and candles set out. These are examples of some of the duties.

Working with our community for our community

Social Groups

Within our community and Parish we have a number of clubs and groups running to help parishioners connect and engage with other members. These initiatives cater to a wide spectrum of interests.

 

Within our Parish

We are committed to providing support and growth for parish and community members through collaborative efforts with both local and national organisations. 

 

Outside Agencies

Through social action initiatives, churches have the potential to make a significant impact on some of the most pressing issues facing our society today. Poverty, homelessness, hunger, and discrimination are complex issues that require collaborative efforts and long-term solutions.

 

Schools

With a strong commitment to Catholic values and teachings, parish schools offer a safe and nurturing environment where students can develop a strong sense of faith, morality, and character. Our local Primary school is St Teresa's and our local college is St Benedict's.

When someone experiences the death of a loved one, they may feel overwhelmed, confused, and isolated. Bereavement support services offered by churches can provide a safe and compassionate space for individuals to process their grief, share their experiences, and receive support.
