On this Friday 23 October, at 6 pm we are having a Taizé service with Mother Joan Claring Bould. This is a quiet meditative style of worship. Mother Joan has been running these for many years at the Cathedral, and is well known in this parish as a past student here.
Sunday, 25 October will be our next Sunday mass. Masses will be said, at 8 am and 10 am. The 8 am mass is a said mass with a sermon but no music, the 10 am is a sung mass with a choir. This week we celebrate the 21st Sunday after Pentecost. There are weekday weekday masses on Tuesday at 10 am, Wednesday at 8 am, Thursday at 12 noon, and Friday and Saturday at 8 am.
A small group meets on Tuesdays for mass at 10 am, then a coffee up the street and an hour of gardening for fellowship.
This group meets on Thursday evenings, 7.30 to 8.30 pm. Our next meeting is on 29 October.
