Our Pastoral Team

The pastoral team works with our priest to promote spiritual growth in the parish. Team members can be contacted by email, telephone or by using the communication box at the back of church. Should you wish to receive a reply to any communication, please include your contact details, but you may of course remain anonymous. Photographs of the current team can be found on this website. The team liaises with the LPA (Local Pastoral Area) which coordinates the work of the four member parishes: Christ the King, St John’s, St Anne’s and St Luke’s.

Children’s Liturgy

This liturgy group, run by voluntary helpers, provides the Gospel in a separate liturgy during Sunday Mass by using words and Gospel activities that the children can understand. All children and parents are welcome.

Children’s Choir

The children's choir meets every Friday during term time at 3:15pm inside the church.
The children get a snack before we start.
Parents can enjoy a "cuppa and a chat" inside the sacristy while the children practice.
Practice finishes at 4pm.

If your child would like to attend the children's choir but you have trouble picking him/her up we can collect your child for you at 3:15pm from school.

We aim to sing every other month at the 10am Sunday mass, learning exciting sacred music but also fun songs from films and musicals!

Just come along see!

All children are welcome!
