Young People

Children’s Church


On the 1st Sunday of each month we have a special Children’s Mass where all children are involved throughout the celebration. Once a month we also celebrate the journey of the First Holy Communion children as they lead our reflection and worship. On the remaining Sundays we have Children’s Liturgy for young children old enough to attend unaccompanied by parents. Once a month a post First Communion children’s liturgy group also meet.

Youth Group


“Young people are the church of today and the hope of tomorrow” (Pope John Paul II)

We have a Youth Group for all in school years 6-9. We meet on the 3rd Sunday of each month following the 9:30am Mass, between 10:30am-12noon in the parish rooms for games, crafts, discussion, prayer and food.  It’s fairly informal and good fun, why not come along! We also have a film & pizza night once a term.

We’d love to start up a youth group for older teens too! So if you are in school years 10-13, get in touch with Lara and she’ll happily organise some events and activities.

For dates and more information please see the newsletter or contact the youth minister, Lara Merk: LMsacredheart@gmail.com. For information of youth events happening in the Diocese check out http://www.yaab.co.uk/

Little Hearties


We run a relaxed and friendly baby and toddler group every other Friday throughout term-time. It is a relaxed free-flow environment with a range of toys, a craft and singing time at the end. Come along to meet new mums, Dads, grandparents and carers.

Young Adults Group


“Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.” (St. Catherine of Siena)

For all students and young adults aged 18-30. We meet once a month for food, prayer and socialising. Meetings take place in the parish rooms on 2nd Sunday of each month between 6.30-8pm. Come along for some pizza, prayer and a trip to the pub!
