Have you been part of our Alpha, Wild Goose, or Unlocking the Mysteries programs of adult faith formation in the past year or two? Many people have found these to be very helpful in deepening their relationship with Jesus Christ, and this has been particularly important in sustaining us in faith during the challenges of the past two years. We would now like to invite you to consider a few things we are currently offering. You’re welcome to take part in these whether you have been directly involved in our programs this year, or not. Advent Lectio Divina: Taking time to prepare for the coming of Jesus Christ. You are invited to join us during Advent to spend time preparing to welcome Christ into our hearts and our homes.

Our youth ministry regularly organise age-appropriate activities that engage faith formation. You are most welcome to come and experience our youth groups. Contact our youth minister Joanna Mak.
