A number of years ago St. Mary’s began its ‘God for Beginners’ group – which was an opportunity for exploration in the basics of our faith. This became a firm part of the weekly diary and through it several people have been confirmed and others have moved on to the Diocesan ‘Called to Serve’ Ministry Training course. This has now been rebranded ‘Refresh’ and will continue to offer opportunities for teaching, prayer and for individuals to grow in their faith.


In recent past, the Refresh group has explored the background, training and formation of a wider Pastoral Team for St. Mary’s and the wider parish.


The recent pastoral exploration ran over a number of weeks:


Week 1:         A Caring Church – an exploration


Week 2:         Caring at Home                 

Film:  Away from her


Week 3:         Learning to Listen 1    


Week 4:         Learning to Listen 2
