These pages will introduce you to our parish community, and give you some information about the history of the parishes and their buildings. We are lucky to have three very beautiful churches, but there is much more to the parish than bricks and mortar. Our parishes are  lively, dedicated and friendly communies of people of all ages, united by our will to love God and to make him known to others. If you would like to come and visit us, you will be very welcome.

You can access the weekly newsletter, and a selection of Fr Peter's homilies, via the 'documents' page in the main menu.
