St. Joseph the Worker is an active and caring community, with many group activities serving Parish needs.

The Parish enjoys the benefit of the Church Hall, which hosts a number of social events during the year, details of which will be found in the weekly newsletter.


Our Friendship Group meets on the 1st and 3rd Friday every month between 2.00 p.m. and 4.00 p.m. in the parish hall. All are welcome. This group is open to all ages.

We are always open to any suggestions of what you would like to see happening at these afternoon sessions. Why not pop in for a cup of tea and a chat? You will be made very welcome.

To enquire further please email Mary Lockwood, our Parish Administrator.

Ever thought of becoming a Catholic? We welcome enquiries from everyone. The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a process in which newcomers are welcomed into the life of the Church.

If you would like to know more about what is involved in becoming a Catholic then please make an appointment to see Fr. Leslie. In the first instance please email Mary Lockwood, our Parish Administrator.

In many ways, volunteers are the fuel that runs our church. Not only do we need volunteers to get stuff done, but volunteering is a way members of the church can fulfil their calling. Please consider volunteering for the many jobs that need doing to help the church run efficiently such as cleaning inside and outside the church, watering plants, perhaps help with flower arranging, washing of the altar linen etc. 

If you can help at all, please contact Mary, Parish Administrator. We need your help. Please!
