The Sunday School for the younger children takes place during the first part of the Parish Eucharist. Then they join the rest of the parish family for the remainder of the service. They play a prominent part in the service, in the very centre of the worship, standing closest to the altar and surrounded by the rest of the congregation.
The Youth Group meets from 12.30-2pm on Sundays after church, in the Parish Centre.
Youth Mass is held on the first Sunday of every month in term time - children read, present their own prayers, sing and participate in the sermon.

BAPTISM AND CONFIRMATION
If you would like your child baptised, we offer a 4 week programme, Welcome to the Family, with a Baptism Partner to prepare with you. A lay member of the congregation will lead potential baptism families through an introduction to the teaching of the church over several weeks. Baptisms take place during the Sunday Mass approximately every six weeks.
First Communion and Confirmation
First Communion – for children aged 7 and above
