Parents' & Toddlers' Group

On Wednesday mornings from 10.00 until noon, a group of mothers & fathers and their babies and toddlers gather in the Hall at St Augustine's. There is always coffee and tea, and plenty of toys to keep the children happy.  Once a month there is a simple Mass in the Hall.

Child Protection

Your babies, children and young people are very warmly welcome in our parish. Jesus encouraged children to come to him. He was upset when his disciples tried to stop them. Jesus laid his hands on children and blessed them. In our parish he continues to welcome them and touch their lives. Open your hearts and your home to him and your family will be blessed with the wonder of his divine love and his gift of peace.

Our parish policy is that every child and young person in our community should feel both deeply loved and completely safe in every way - in mind, body and spirit. We are committed to child protection and seek to work fully with our Diocesan Guidelines for Good Practice as well as guidance from the Catholic Bishop's Conference.
