Every first Friday of the Month . . . Nightfever
A very gentle way of evangelisation ... The church remains open from 7:30pm - 10pm, bathed in just candlelight. On the altar is the exposed Blessed Sacrament. Live music is softly played in the background. Our volunteers are outside, in pairs, just inviting passers by to come in and light a candle. The response to the invitation varies, but a surprising amount of people come in.
No hard sell, no twisting arms, no guilt trips - just beauty, candles and grace.
Come along and join the team!
