Love seeks one thing only: the good of the one loved. It leaves all the other secondary effects to take care of themselves. Love, therefore, is its own reward. (see 1 Cor.13:5)


Due to illness and other absences, we regret there will be no Music Group to lead the Mass in worship this Sunday, 26th May, 2019. We really would appreciate it if more singers or instrumentalists felt able to join us so we could maintain a permanent presence at 10am Mass. See below.

Singing is a joy and singing to God is a privilege and a blessing. Music Group membership is open access and we have found that, regardless of previous experience or ability, most volunteers are able to reach a level good enough to lead the 10 am Mass congregation.

We would like to recruit more singers men included as we need about 8 singers each Sunday to provide a good full sound to fill the church and encourage the congregation to sing along. You needn't be professional just have the ability to 'carry a tune'. Come along after Mass and speak to one of us to find out more about it. Or you can email us for further details. The email address is on this page, bottom right.

The Group is also very much in need of help with the setting up of its sound equipment and would appreciate anyone with an interest in music technology offering a helping hand on Sundays. If you are interested and would like to know more, please get in touch with us.

The Music Group ministry has been leading the 10 o'clock Mass in worship through music for 27 years. If you have any questions, click here.
