Youth Minister Appointed
Thanks to a generous grant from the Catholic Foundation we are able to employ a part time Coordinator of Youth activities. I am pleased to announce that Chris Lysaght has been appointed to the role beginning this week. He comes with long experience both here and in New Zealand where he comes from (he is a Kiwi).


Gap Year Ministry
Further to that this year we are continuing our “Gap Year” youth leadership with the appointment of Sophie McNaught and Jane Mary McMaster. They will work with the support of Chris. Sophie had intended to join NET ministries but was unable. So it is great to be able to offer her this ministry. Congratulations to them both.

Break Through in your Relationship

We all struggle at times in our marriage but it's not always easy to find good advice or practical help.
SmartLoving BreakThrough is an online course FREE until St Valentine's Day. It will help you understand how conflict happens, guide you to develop an effective strategy for managing it, and lead you through a process of personal rejuvenation designed to heal the pain caused by conflict with your loved one.
The course is designed for individual spouses so you don't need your spouse to do the course with you.
