In the light of recent events namely: the rapid spread of the new variant of Covid, the government announcement to stay at home unless it is absolutely necessary, plus the fact that Fr James is currently out of action, so we are reliant upon retired supply priests, we feel that the most responsible course of action is for us to temporarily close both churches for communal worship and private prayer. We will however remain open for funerals. We will keep reviewing the situation on a regular basis and will reopen the churches as soon as we feel that it is responsible to do so.

The Parish Pastoral Council is an advisory and consultative body to the Parish Priest, who act for the good of the Parish. More specifically:

a. Primarily, to encourage all to take part in the spiritual and liturgical life of the Parish. From time to time this may also include more practical matters but in a supervisory role.

b. To build the idea “We are the Parish Family”.

c. To co-ordinate Pastoral ideas, suggestions and projects between Parish, Deanery and Diocesan groups.

d. To bring different Parish organisations and groups together.
