The Outreach Group aims to help fulfil the parish covenant with the poor and commitment to justice and peace. We raise funds through the monthly Give to Live collection, parish raffle and events such as Coffee, Cakes and Cuttings. These funds are distributed directly to our local and overseas partners. We also aim to inform and educate parishioners about the ways in which our partners support those in need.
We welcome new members – if you are interested in helping us, or wish to receive the minutes of our monthly meeting, please contact Claire Parsons ( Send Email ) or speak to any Outreach member.
