Our Lady & St Werburgh Church Groups

Welcome to the Church Groups Section. Our Lady and St Werburgh runs several activity groups including a excellent parent's and toddlers group, a great youth club for all ages, a senior citizens club and a Journey Of Faith Group.

Parents & Toddlers Club

The parent and toddler group runs every Wednesday (term time) from 9.30am – 11.00 am. All very welcome.

The group provides a safe, informal environment for parents/carers and pre-school children and babies to meet, play and socialise.

The usual format includes free playtime, creative play at the art table, snack time and the session generally ends with organised songs and rhymes.

Meeting times: Wednesdays 9.30 a.m. – 11.30 a.m. in Our Lady and St Werburgh Parish Hall.

Children's Liturgy Group

The concept of children’s liturgy is to bring the Word of God, ‘The Gospel’ to the children at their level and to enable them to understand the relevance of the gospels in their lives today.

We have 2 groups. The older group is for school age children starting at about 4 ½ years of age to about 9 years old.

The younger group is for toddlers from 2 years to 4 ½ years.

With the older group is an adult teacher and a helper – no need for parents to come up.

The younger group needs an adult with each child – preferably not the same adult each week. Adults need their chance to develop their faith by listening to the Gospel and the Sermons too.

Meeting times: Every Sunday 10.00am Mass.

Music Ministry

The music ministry continues to play an important role in our weekly worship at Clayton.

We are grateful to John Hartley for his on-going dedication in playing the organ at the 8:15 mass.

A number of members of our parish have offered their gifts to support this important ministry. Our thanks go to Dan Tierney, Francois Rouffet, and Michelle Tierney.

Meeting Times: Every Sunday 10.00am Mass

Piety Stall

The Piety stall is manned at both Sunday morning Masses by volunteers.

We have stock for First Holy Communion and Confirmation and Christmas, cards for all religious occasions, rosaries, crucifixes, statues and medals and a small stock of books.

We can take special orders on request and would be delighted with any new ideas for stock!

Open after every 8.00 and 10.00 Sunday Mass.

Church Cleaning Team

The church has a wonderful team of volunteer cleaners, but some of the teams, after long service are keen to retire!

The Church itself is cleaned every week by one of six different teams. The Upper Room is done by the other teams.

Anyone wishing to volunteer please contact Sharon in the parish office on 01782 613023.

Church Coffee Team

The church has a wonderful team of volunteer coffee makers who are on hand after each church service.

The updated rota is now available to collect from the porch.

Parish House Groups

Two House Groups have been going strong in the parish for just over seven years. One group meets at the Hartleys’ house, the other at the Tierney’s house. The groups meet about six or seven times a year. Each group has around nine members. The groups meet, above all, in friendship.
