Parish Groups

We have several parish groups which exist for spiritual and charitable purposes within St Mary Mother of God Church.

The Knights of St Columba

The KSC are a Fraternity dedicated to ‘Serving God by Serving Others’ by working in our Communities and Parishes, helping people to grow in their Catholic faith and looking after those less fortunate than ourselves.

We usually meet 2nd Sunday of the month in the Van Meenen Room but for the moment are reliant upon online meetings via Zoom. For more information, contact Brian Rodgers on 01708 459179 or email

St Vincent de Paul Society

The SVP is very different from other groups that may exist in the Parish. Firstly, we don’t only help parishioners; we will help anyone in need in the area; irrespective of their faith. Also, as well as visiting people, we provide material assistance where needed.

We meet Fridays at 8:00pm in the Matisse Room

Exploring your Faith
