Community Club

The Community Club runs on 2nd & 4th Tuesdays of the month after 9.30 am Mass. The meetings are in the Parish room at St. Gregory’s.

Going into Hospital

Please let your priest know if you or a family member is going into hospital. You will need to ask for a Catholic chaplain as hospital chaplains are no longer given the names of Catholic patients. Many health care providers e.g hospitals, nursing homes, and mental health units, apportion chaplaincy resources in line with the numbers of requests made for visits and the Sacraments. It is therefore important to keep making requests.


We need more helpers to join our friendly team. It’s very relaxing and rewarding decorating St Gregory’s church. Experience NOT necessary – there are a variety of jobs. However, should you wish to learn a new skill, we can offer plenty of assistance and encouragement! If you can spare an hour or two each month, please ring V. Sedgwick on 01789 298549
