You can also donate to the parish using Paypal or a debit or credit card by clicking the button below:-

First Holy Communion: We are very sorry, but we have had to cancel the FHC this year. Because of various reasons we would have to start all of the preparation again, and we could not guarantee when any of it would happen. Please explain to your children, and we will arrange the new programme in the new year.

School Governor: Are you interested in becoming a School Governor for SS Joseph & Teresa Primary School? The primary school serves all our four parishes. Experience in the education sector would be useful but is not essential, as the Governing Body needs many skills. The main commitment is to attend and prepare for six meetings per year. The role is challenging but rewarding. New governors receive induction training and are offered other training courses. The diocese appoints a Foundation Governor to serve for four years. If you are interested, please talk to Father Bede or Father Anselm.

Welcome and Cleaning: With the new guideline, we need someone at the door before Masses to squirt people with sanitiser and to wipe down things afterwards. If you can help please contact the Priests.

Keeping in touch: A note to say that we have a weekly keeping in touch email. If you would like to receive it to email

Cheddar Valley Food Bank: Many people are suffering hardship through loss of livelihoods due to the Coronavirus, and more and more demands are being made on Food Banks. It is possible to make direct cash donations - information on how to do this can be found on their website. Alternatively, you can send a cheque made payable to Cheddar Valley Food Bank addressed to Cheddar Valley Food Bank, Cheddar Valley Community Church, The Oasis, Tweentown, Cheddar BS27 3JB. If you are a tax payer and wish your donation to be Gift Aided, please endorse the back of the cheque with 'I declare that I am a UK taxpayer' adding your signature and date.

MISSIO: The Holy Father has established an emergency fund to come to the aid of those people and communities who are being tragically impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic. He has asked each one of us to contribute what we can to help the Church overseas, through MISSIO. Mill Hill Missionaries are working in Coronavirus hotspots across the world. They are on the frontline, giving pastoral, spiritual and material support to those in greatest need. "Lockdown in a sprawling slum with no sanitation, no running water and no money must be close to hell on Earth". If you are able to donate, please make your cheque payable to MISSIO COVID-19 Appeal and send it to MISSIO, Freepost Plus RTKE-XAZJ-ULUA, COVID-19 Response, 23 Eccleston Square, LONDON SW1V 1NU. Many thanks. (Jeannette)
