Parish Vision

Our vision is for a community of equals which aims to love God and to love our neighbour:
with all our HEART, in the welcome and care we show to all,
with all our SOUL, in the way we worship,
with all our STRENGTH, in the way we use our gifts for the good of others,
with all our MIND, in the way we bring the message of the Gospel to all those around us.
