An Invitation

Our parish is a community of ordinary people seeking to follow Jesus and extending God’s love in our families, places of work and community. We do this in a whole variety of ways. We invite you to become part of our church family by attending a worship service and getting involved in some way.

Groups

We have groups and activities for all ages and stages:

See the Vicar or phone the office if you’d like to join the parish, receive the monthly magazine, give financially to the mission of our parish or get involved in any other way.

Welcoming and Hospitality

Part of belonging involves making a decision to serve someone else – and that’s why volunteering in some ministry area is so important – you serve God, the community, and also, as a spin off, you feel more at home! If you would like to join a welcoming or hospitality team please see one of the parish staff – greeting or pouring tea will really help!

Choir: If you are interested in singing and would like to join either the Sunday morning or Sunday evening choir please contact Denis Guyan on 343 4074.

Lifestreams Band: If you sing or play an instrument and would like to join the Lifestreams Band please contact Rosa Elliott on 022 652 2690

Dinners for Eight

Each year, over the winter months, we get together in each others homes for wine, a great meal and a great time. We call this ‘Dinners for Eight’ and it’s all about helping people get to know others and actively building the relationships and fellowship of our parish. Each month, for four months, about 10 or 12 couples host three other couples in their home. You don’t know who you will be with until the week before when you’re contacted and asked to provide a part something for the meal. It’s always exciting, surprising and the company is always stimulating! At the very end we have a banquet in the hall where everyone gets together and enjoys a big night out together – with entertainment!
