Sharing social events is an important part of any family and this is no exception in the parish family of St Therese of Lisieux.

We have a group of parishioners who are planning and organising various social events throughout the year.

They would be more than happy for anyone who has any ideas or is interested in helping out to contact them and become involved.

Please use our contact page if you have ideas.



28th March – St Therese’s Got Talent

After last year’s talent contest of the year, the bar has well and truly been set. We are looking for singers, dancers, comedians etc to entertain us for about 5 minutes on stage.  A panel of judges will choose the three best entrants and they will then battle it out for the public vote.  Everyone can bring their own refreshments and a £3 entrance fee will be charged.

20th April – Easter Sunday Decorative Egg Competition      

As previous years, we will have an egg competition for under age 9s and over age 9s where children can bring their decorated egg to Easter Sunday mass and Father Pat will choose the winners. Entry will be £2 for each egg entered.


28th June – Parish Sleepover

Everyone is invited to the school field to set up camp and enjoy some family games and sing along fun.  Tent pitches will be charged at £10 and please bring food and drink for the evening.   Remember a torch!


20th July – Summer Garden Party

Everyone is invited to attend the summer garden party and it will again be held at the school. The party will consist of an evening BBQ and music and we hope to have a few stalls too.  The cost will be £5 per ticket.  The afternoon will start at 3 p.m. with BBQ from 4 p.m.



5th September – Harvest Festival Mass

We want to make the harvest festival mass really special and families are invited to bring products to church where they will be placed around the altar.  A raffle will take place after mass to raise as much money as possible.  Refreshments will be available.


21st September – Parish Treasure Hunt

Back to the traditional treasure hunt in the car!  Families set off from the school car park and points will be awarded along the route with the results announced back at the finishing point at the school.  The full treasure hunt will take approx two hours.


25th October – St Therese Saturday Night Takeaway

If you thought that Ant and Dec’s Takeaway show on TV was good just wait for this.  Everyone can join in

with the fun and games that mimic the show …… and one or two might just get a surprise!


6th December – Parish Christmas Meal & Disco

Families are invited to this fabulous Christmas function in the school hall.  A Christmas meal will be served

and the hall decorated with festive cheer. A disco will follow the meal and families can bring their own drinks.


 14th December – Children’s Christmas Party

A Christmas Party for the children with food and party games.  More details about the age groups and timings will be made available nearer the time.


21st December – Carols by Candlelight  

For the first time at St Therese, starting at 5.30 p.m. in the school hall, Carols by Candlelight will be an opportunity for us all to reflect on the word of god, prepare for Christmas and celebrate with the parish community.  Coffee and mince pies will be served afterwards and perhaps a glass of mulled wine!
