Welcome home

We are so glad you are here

We look forward to you joining us for the celebration of Mass.

You no longer have to book a place; just turn up and we will take your details.  All we ask is that you continue to wear a face covering, sanitise your hands on entering the church and continue to practice social distancing.

In addition to Mass times, the church is also open for private prayer, with Exposition and Adoration on Fridays between 10.00am and 6.00pm. You are welcome to come for as long or as little as you would like.

We look forward to welcoming you to our church.
