The strength of the Sacred Hearts’ spiritual and community life derives largely from volunteers in the parish. In our hearts and in our actions, we remember that Christ came not to be served but to serve. Whether for the church, hall, squash club, or bar and lounge, volunteers put the Lord’s teaching into practice with energy and commitment, as well good humour, to help make Sacred Hearts a giving and welcoming parish.

There are over forty parish groups providing religious, social and ecumenical activities, offering plenty of ways to participate and contribute. Whether a local ministry, outreach programme, youth group, church cleaning, the parish fete, hall committee or other activity, there’s a lot to choose from.Tricia Morgan
