Benefice:

Very mixed in just about every way. The area is classed as one of severe deprivation. We are at the heart of an area of very mixed race, faith, cultures and life styles.

Our Strengths:

The Holy Spirit is at the heart of all we do. We are open, hospitable, maintaining the catholic tradition of the church. We encourage other Christian groups to use our building. Our building is an excellent venue for concerts with superb sighting (no pillars) and wonderful acoustics.

Our Needs:

Our building needs to be used more. We need to encourage more people to share in our community life. We need to develop a specific mission and ministry to the elderly and to the ethnic churches.
