Get The Gospel

These groups generally meet fortnightly during school term-time to think about the gospel reading for the following Sunday.  It's a good way to make sure that the Sunday morning worship comes alive, as well as thinking about how the teachings of Jesus relate to our life experiences.

To find out more please see Fr David or contact the Parish Office.

Living Word

These groups also meet fortnightly for more general Bible study lokking at a range of books contained in the Bible.  The Bible is a vast library of literature spanning thousands of years from the ancient history of the Middle East to the emergence of the early Church under the Roman Empire.  Through these books God speaks to us powerfully in our lives.

To find out more please see Fr David or contact the Parish Office.
