All Children having received their First Holy Communion are welcome to serve as Altar Servers.


Each Sunday during school term time our Parish has an organised Children’s Liturgy at the 9am Mass with the aim of bringing the message of Christ to children in a way that is easy for them to understand and enjoy.

At the beginning of Mass, children are invited to go with the leaders to the Parish Centre. Whilst in the centre they participate in prayers and hymns and listen to a simplified version of the Gospel for that day.

Once the Gospel has been read we encourage the children to discuss the story and its meaning whilst enjoying an activity based on the theme. The children are led back into the church for the Offertory procession taking the bread and wine up to the altar.
