Update, 19 December:

Both churches, St Theresa’s and St George’s, are now FULLY BOOKED for the Christmas Masses.

If, by 18 December, you had requested a place, you should by now have received confirmation.

Please do not just turn up without a confirmed place because stewards will have to turn you away.

Much has been different this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.


In our parishes, the Christmas Masses will, unavoidably, be different too.


  • The capacity of our churches is reduced to allow for social distancing.

  • Prior booking of seats is essential.

  • Windows and/or doors will be kept open to ensure good ventilation.

  • There will be no singing.

  • The large cribs will not be in place.

  • Socialising indoors is not permitted.

  • The pattern of Masses - times and locations - will be different from previous years.


Although we may not have a crib in either of our churches this year, parishioners have their own at home. Some of these can be seen in the pictures below:
