Children's Playgroups

Play Groups

As part of our mission of outreach, we welcome any parents, carers and grandparents to join us to share our journeys together.

Our mission is to demonstrate God’s loving presence in an environment where children are encouraged to play, learn and explore; fostering and developing relationships inspired by Catholic teachings and values.

Please join us for some craft, friendship and prayer.
