Something for Everyone!

 
 
The Parish has many groups you can join. There are groups for worship-related activities like music, bellringing, altar servers, and prayer. Some groups are for children and young people. Some concentrate on social interaction. Some give opportunities for learning about the faith. And some serve the community by running things like the Bookstall, the Parish News magazine, or the website. Have a look under the broad ‘categories’ below for a brief overview of each group.
