Outreach

The Parish Outreach Group is involved in a number of initiatives which attempt to carry into action our stated aim in the Parish Mission Statement –

‘to reach out to people, especially the poor and marginalised, as we share and witness to the Gospel in what we say and do’

Currently the parish is involved in a variety of activities:

  • One World Group: carrying on the work started in 1976. (see more detail under Parish Groups)
  • Bethany Night Shelter: providing accommodation for our most needy in the city
  • Tanzania Project: working with our twinned parish of St Mary’s in Moshi Diocese
  • Mary’s Meals: collecting basic materials for the poorest children throughout the world
  • Youth Group: reaching out to the young people in the parish, cluster group and local community to provide a safe occasion to meet, relax and work together on a number of projects to help others
