Faith Formation

Faith Formation

Adult Formation

Have you ever struggled to answer the question, Why are you a Catholic? Have you ever wondered why we believe what we believe? Have you ever asked, Why did I stop learning about my faith when I was a child? Our parishes of Sacred Heart and Blessed Sacrament are together offering a wonderful opportunity to develop and deepen your relationship with God and the Church by exploring our Catholic faith.

We have established an adult formation group which meets in person growing in faith together.  We began with films from Bishop Robert Barron’s ‘Word on Fire’ series. The films covered a wide range of faith themes such as The Mass, The Saints and The Sacraments. Exploring these, together with lively and stimulating conversation opened our minds to the riches of our faith and the treasures of the Church’s teaching.

We are now moving onto a new format, but still exploring aspects of the Catholic faith with talks, films and discussion. Please join us, we can guarantee stimulating discussions and open learning. Please refer to the Parish Newsletter to get detailed times for when and where we are meeting.

To get a flavour of what’s on offer watch the trailer for the series ‘Catholicism’ by clicking this link. To join us on this journey of discovery or to find out more, register by simply clicking this link. We look forward to seeing you.

Wednesday Word

A weekly opportunity to encounter Jesus Christ through reading and reflecting on scripture. We meet every Wednesday at 2.00pm in small groups to read the Gospel for the coming Sunday and to share personal thoughts and reflections. It’s a wonderful way of preparing for and engaging more fully with the themes and message of the readings. If you would like to join a Wednesday Word group contact Maria at
We look forward to meeting you and journeying together in faith.
