Parish Action Groups

We have a number of Action Groups to enable us to share the love of Jesus in the church and community.

Any member of the Church Electoral Roll can join an Action Group, subject to PCC approval.

These are the groups that meet regularly throughout the year. If you are on the Church Electoral roll and would like to join one of the groups, please contact Revd Sue at
