Resuming Public Mass

It is with great joy then, that Mass with a congregation present will resume at Sacred Heart Church from the weekend of Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th December.
Mass will continue to be live-streamed on our live page and our Facebook page.
Mass will once again be available on Wednesday mornings at 10:00am from 9th December, followed by praying the Rosary. The church will close at 11:30.

Attendance needs to be booked and this can be done by email via or by phone to Jan on 07719012955. More information is on page 3 of the newsletter and on our attending Mass page.

Please visit the Coronavirus page and attending Mass page for any last minute change.
