Our aim in Children's Liturgy and in the Children’s Mass is to help children grow in the faith of the Catholic Church and to develop as full and active members of our parish community.
Our Children's Liturgy, where under 8's hear the Gospel and take part in scripture-based craft activities, forms part of our 10.30 a.m. Mass. If you would like your child to participate in Children's Liturgy please see Fr. Gregory to register.
There are four teams of parents who organize Children's Liturgy, with each team following national safeguarding guidelines and each leader having undergone a CRB check.
At Children’s Masses, held on the first Sunday of the month, the children read, serve on the altar and assist with the gifts and collection. Click here to view the children's liturgy rota.
Boys and girls are welcome to join the altar servers following their First Holy Communion. Altar servers make a great contribution to the celebration of Mass so please do volunteer.
