Please can everyone using the car park take extra care and adhere to the NO PARKING signs. Cars are regularly blocking access routes and parking on double yellow lines obstructing the free flow of traffic and pedestrians.


  • recently the concrete bollard which had only just been replaced was bumped into;
  • the wooden flower beds outside the Monastery was severely damaged, after so much hard work had gone into replanting them,
  • cars are constantly being scraped.

In most of these cases NO-ONE has informed the monastery that they have caused any damage. Please park responsiblyand manoeuvre carefully to avoid damaging any property.  

Sick List. 

We are finding it difficult to keep the list up to date because everyone for whom we are asked to pray is not necessarily a parishioner. It will be helpful if people recover or sadly die that you let the parish office know. We plan to tidy up the list in the coming weeks. Obviously we will keep praying for all those whom we know remain unwell, but if there is someone on the list whom you particularly wish to keep on the list and whom we may not know, please inform the parish office.

Come and Join Us: 

As part of the events marking the 50th Anniversary of the opening of the Metropolitan Cathedral, a special concert is being given in the Cathedral on Saturday 7 October 2017 at 7:30pm.

The participants are the Cantata Choir, directed by James Luxton and the Cathedral Orchestra, conducted by Stephen Pratt. 

The programme of all British music has been devised to allow singers of different standards to participate. For those who can sight-read there will be a few Thursday evening rehearsals prior to the dress rehearsal on the day. For those who would like to come along to enjoy joining in some rousing hymns, only the dress rehearsal on the day of the concert will be necessary.
