Parish Assembly

The Assembly is open to the whole Parish and meets annually to report on activities of all the parish interest groups. The Assembly also provides an open forum at which parishioners can raise issues, concerns, or other points of interest.

Parish Co-ordinating Committee

The Parish Co-ordinating Committee meets three times a year and reviews the activities of each of the parish interest groups. Members comprise representatives of those interest groups and they elect a chairperson. The committee considers parish needs and facilitates measures to meet them; responds to recommendations from the Parish Assembly; and carries out tasks entrusted by the Parish Priest.

Finance Committee

The main task of the Finance Committee is to assist the Parish Priest in his duty as an agent of the Trustees of Southwark Diocese. Members ensure a budget is prepared, check income and expenditure, present annual accounts and report back to the Parish Assembly. The committee has the responsibility of ensuring financial controls are in place and sanctions expenditure on any major projects.

Communications

A weekly newsletter is produced and notices about parish, local and diocesan events are posted on the notice boards at the back of the church. Material for the weekly Parish Newsletter should reach the parish office by Wednesday of each week.

Church Hall and Rinkenbach Room

The church hall has facilities for catering. In addition to the large hall, accommodating over 100 in conference style seating, there is the small Rinkenbach Room. There is access for the disabled. If you wish to hold a meeting or private function you will need to make an advanced booking.

Sacristy

Successful running of the sacristy is fundamental to carrying out required liturgical procedures and also in creating the serenity we wish to display in conducting our services. Tasks include laundry of the altar linen and cleaning of the church.
