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.
