Parish planning groups

Hospitality

Hospitality is a very important ministry in our Church. Please help – there is no commitment other than helping when the occasion arises. We try to be available for funerals when people travel long distances and may not know their way around our Church. The work is not onerous, but is sociable.

Parish Assembly

These meetings take place twice each year and take the form of open parish meetings to explore issues of shared concern, e.g. pastoral initiatives, the parish annual financial statement of accounts, or our mission to the least of our brothers and sisters, with whom Jesus identifies.

Parish Pastoral Council

In addition to the Parish team, the PPC consists of 12 parishioners – a representative group nominated by the parish. The PPC’s values are to be centred around Christ; representative; pastoral; collaborative; prayerful; discerning; prophetic; enabling; and unifying. It’s role is to affirm the good already being done by discerning and strengthening the value of existing programmes and services; encouraging new initiatives; sharing in the task of identifying pastoral needs; and planning strategically for pastoral activity and service. The PPC usually meets 10 times a year. Minutes of the meetings will be available in the church foyer next to the list of members.
