St. Francis Guild
The Guild consists of a number of men and women who are interested in supporting the work of the Parish.
The Guild pays for the flowers, books (mass and music books), cleaning products, and ther incidentals. They organise social events to raise funds to pay for this, and any surplus is given to the Church to help pay for expenses it incurs.
Contact Maria for more information.
Catechists give help, training, and instruction for new and growing parishioners

Christian Life Community (CLC)
A CLC group has been meeting here at the parish since March 2011. We meet every other Tuesday evening to share with each other about our prayer journey and where God has been in our lives.
CLC is a national and international community which supports us in living our Christian life inspired by the spirituality of St Ignatius of Loyola.
The CLC way of life:
enables us to become more aware of God’s presence in our everyday lives,
encourages us to support each other in our efforts to work with Christ in our service to others,
gives us ways of praying and discerning God’s will in our lives, and
encourages us to read the scriptures and offers us the opportunity to listen to others and share our own reflections.

CAFOD (Catholic Aid for Overseas Development)

This meets 2nd Monday in the month at 7:30pm. Contact Ruth Morgan for more information and location for where it meets.
Children's liturgy group
Each Sunday we hold a Children’s liturgy during Mass for the younger children, run by a team of helpers.
We also have at least one special Children’s Mass during the year when children take part in the readings and present their own bidding prayers. The children also perform a short Nativity Play at Christmas.
