Marsh Community Activities

The Priory employs a Community Worker, Katie Schad, to be involved in the life of the Parish, so that the love of God can be seen throughout the area. The work is very varied but includes leading the Carer and Toddler, volunteering at the Marsh Community Centre, visiting the house bound and working with Schools to support parents and children.

Community Groups during Coivd19

Initially all the groups had to stop as the Government asked us to stay home to stay safe.  But over the year both the Marsh Community Choir and the Coffee and Cake Club moved online, and we had many weeks of hilarious quizzes and conversations on Zoom.  We kept in touch with Toddler Group families via Facebook, visits and occasional activity packs. The easing of lockdown restrictions has meant that all the groups are now really enjoying meeting again in person.

If you would like to know more about any of the groups please contact me, Katie – katie.schad@lancasterpriory.org


Covid restrictions have meant that the time and place of the group may have had to change:

Mini Marshmallows is on Fridays 10.00 – 11.15, now meeting at the Marsh Community Centre on Willow Lane.  It is a friendly group that starts with free play for the children and ends with songs instruments and a story.

As Covid restrictions mean Community Choirs are not allowed to sing we have changed our name to Marsh Music, and we meet to chat, listen to and learn more about music, while also practicing rhythms. We meet at 1.30 on Mondays at the Marsh  Community Centre

Coffee and Cake Club. We still meet on Fridays at 1.30 at the Community Centre, for a socially distanced get together and delicious homemade cake, great company and a good laugh.
