Share your time and talents

How is God calling you to serve the Catholic parish of Bishop’s Stortford?

Being part of any community is about getting involved and churches are no exception. Getting involved will mean you get the most out of church life and deepen your own relationship with God and other people as a result.

There are many ways of getting involved in the parish. You can volunteer to be a catechist, church cleaner, or assist with catering for parish events. Contact the Parish Office for details.

We also have various parish groups catering to a diverse range of interests. Why not check them out to meet like minded people? Our Parish Groups page has all the details.

A key area for volunteering is the liturgy. We are dedicated to making our Sunday worship as good as it can possibly be.

We rely heavily on people like you! We are always looking for people who will share their talents with the Lord and with their brothers and sisters. Click on the links below.
