In the light of recent events namely: the rapid spread of the new variant of Covid, the government announcement to stay at home unless it is absolutely necessary, plus the fact that Fr James is currently out of action, so we are reliant upon retired supply priests, we feel that the most responsible course of action is for us to temporarily close both churches for communal worship and private prayer. We will however remain open for funerals. We will keep reviewing the situation on a regular basis and will reopen the churches as soon as we feel that it is responsible to do so.

Our Window Trilogy

The centre window, featuring a cross and a crown, takes its theme from the dedication of our church ‘Christ The King’ – Victory through the Cross, Christ crowned – the Alpha & the Omega- (in use since the 4th century) the beginning & the end.

The left hand window portrays the suffering of Our Saviour – The Crown of Thorns along with the nails of Christ’s crucifixion. INRI – Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews

The right hand window depicts the risen Lord – The candle (Light of the World) & the olive branches (Peace be with you) – the Easter message. The Greek Chi Rho - The monogram of Christ (in use since the 4th century)

The 3 windows were designed Sr Anthony FSM & made & installed by Paul & Maureen Fuller.

The 2 outer windows are dedicated to Jim & Kathleen O’Brien - 2 long standing parishioners, who over many years did lots of valuable voluntary work for the parish.

The centre window is dedicated to Sr Anthony & the Fuller family
