Open Weekend, 10th – 11th September 2016

Ours is a vibrant parish with many great and varied activities taking place.

The Open Weekend

The purpose of the Open Weekend is to share the aims and experiences of the organisations which provide so many ways of helping people to further develop their faith both spiritually and practically.

There are more than 50 groups listed in the Parish Directory from Altar servers to “You can be Santa”. They mostly hold regular meetings and they all would welcome new members to support them in their aims and objectives. These represent opportunities for every member of the parish, young, old, single or married, male or female to join a group or two should they wish.

Sacramental preparation, liturgy, prayer groups, justice and peace, befriending the vulnerable, mission work, working with the youth and other faiths, are just some of areas which will be covered by more than 30 organisations at the Open Weekend.

Each group will set up a table display in the hall, with resources that clearly express their aims.  Representatives will be there ready to talk about their organisation and answer any questions.

Set Up

On Saturday 10 September, groups can set up from 2 pm until 4 pm; the Parish Centre will be open for visitors 4 pm until 8 pm.

On Sunday 11 September, the Parish Centre will be open for visitors 8.30 am until 1.30 pm then 4 pm until 8.30 pm; and stalls will be dismantled and put away between 8.30 and 9 pm.

We will be serving refreshments in the foyer throughout so we do need volunteers to help with this.
