See in the Feb – April newsletter how everyone can commit to make small (or big) changes through Lent (the period from Ash Wednesday on 26 Feb to Easter) to make a positive impact on our precious world, God’s amazing creation. Also see the Plastic Free Lent challenge sheet and, in the newsletter, the Special Offer from the editor of reduced price Lent Booklets.

Community Outreach Group

We are looking for new members from all 3 worship centres who would like to join a small group of us who are looking at ways of how we can continue to show the love of Jesus in our parish.
