“My little children, your hearts are small but prayer stretches them …” St John Vianney

The St Vincent de Paul Society (England & Wales) is part of an international Christian voluntary network dedicated to tackling poverty in all its forms by providing practical assistance to people in need. Our 10,000 members, motivated by faith, visit vulnerable or isolated people across England and Wales and offer them friendship and practical support. The essence of our work is person-to-person contact and spending time with people is our greatest gift. We have a very active SVP group in the Parish. If you would like to become a member, please contact Andrew on 07546 595 327.
