Tea and Coffee:

This has been a very successful initiative as it has afforded the opportunity to gather informally as a community for a cuppa and a chat after each mass.

The 9:30am session is back up and running and we would very much like to re-start the teas and coffees after the 11:30am mass as well.

If you are available and willing to volunteer to help with the teas and coffees

please contact Stephen on 07875 412380.

Thank you.
