A very warm welcome to our parish. We are fortunate to have a fine church. Its upkeep has been helped by the Gift Aid programme which has worked well for us in the past and we have therefore begun to make efforts to ensure that offerings made by visitors during Mass are included in our Gift Aid scheme. If you are a UK taxpayer, and if you place your offering in the white envelopes found in the Foyer and simply enter your name and address, we will be able to reclaim the tax you have paid on the amount given. Envelopes can be posted in the letterbox in the Foyer, given to a parish Welcomer, or placed on the Offertory tray. The Gift Aid form can be downloaded here.
Church reopens for Daily Mass
Sunday was the First Sunday of Advent and happily our Church reopens for Daily Mass from Thursday 3rd onwards. Looking forward for us being together again. Please don’t forget to book a place for weekend Masses and if you would like to celebrate Mass on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day or Sunday 27th.
Churches Together wish everyone in our village communities a very Happy Christmas. I hope you like our Christmas banner in place of Christmas cards this year.

World leaders signed a promise in 2015 to try and keep global temperature rises below 2 degrees. In 2018 scientists said that this target must drop to 1.5 degrees.
