SVP - Society of Saint Vincent de Paul
Our parish Conference (branch) of this society aims to do what we can to help parishioners in need, who are referred to us by the Parish Priest. We meet weekly to discuss ongoing needs, new problems arising and what can be done. Then we usually visit our clients, in pairs, and discuss their current situation. Sometimes it can mean putting people in touch with the right agency, sometimes it can mean providing some household articles.. Naturally there is a great deal of confidentiality, and CRB checks must be carried out before anyone can become directly involved.

The Church Shop
In this parish, this is rather more than what used to be called a 'piety stall' and it holds a fair range of goods. There is some extra work involved in making sure the Shop is well stocked with suitable items, but the regular activity involves making sure the shop is open immediately at the end of Mass, and that people can be served and supplied briskly and cheerfully.

Union of Catholic Mothers
The Union of Catholic Mothers is a national organisation with Foundations (Groups) all over the country. Our aims are to support the Sacrament of Marriage, to bring up and educate our children in the Catholic Faith, to offer support to families in difficulties and foster vocations to the priesthood and religious life.

St Margaret Mary's UCM (founded 1932) is a very active group of over 50 members involved in all aspects of Parish life. We meet weekly on Wednesday evenings at 8.30 in the Parish Centre. All ladies are welcome, married or not, mothers or not.

We offer talks, demonstrations, days out, retreats, pilgrimages, theatrical performances, bi-monthly Masses at other churches - but principally support to each other. So come and join us in Faith, Fun and Friendship.
