Photo of exterior of church East window central light The parish of the Sacred Heart has a reputation for being welcoming and friendly, with many varied activities for all age groups. This web site provides information about these activities and the liturgical life of the parish. Read our Parish Profile to get a flavour of who we are, what we do and how we do it.

The church is a Grade II listed building with an interesting and unusual history, having been built originally as an Anglican church. The pre-Raphaelite stained glass windows in the church were designed mainly by Edward Burne-Jones, with contributions from Ford Madox Brown and William Morris and constitute one of the best collections of stained-glass from the William Morris Company in the North of England.

Farewell to MASH

Dear Parishioners and Friends,

Having celebrated 25 years with mass and a successful wine tasting and auction at the Sacred Heart, we’ve decided it’s time to hang up the MASH gloves.

Over the past 25 years, we have raised over £250,000 and even more in medicines, equipment, food, clothing and other resources. We would like to thank any of you who have prayed and supported us in helping our brothers and sisters in need throughout the years. Without a doubt, thanks to you we have saved lives and given hope to countless people in many parts of the world.

God bless you and keep you,

Gerry O'Hanlon and the Medical Aid Sacred Heart team
