A warm welcome

We offer a warm welcome to visitors and to new members of the community. 

  Sacred Heart Statue










Our community affirms joyfully our faith in Jesus Christ, True God and True Man.  We use our gifts to help and support each other following the example and teachings of Jesus Christ, handed on by the Apostles and preserved by the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, which He founded to continue His work through time and which speaks with His own authority.  With the Eucharist at the centre of our lives, we endeavour to build a vibrant community around the holy Eucharist, where we celebrate the gift of Christ’s love.  


A blessed place: Patron Saints

Our Parish nourishes strong devotion to Our Lady, and we ask for her mediation particularly under the title of Our Lady of Good Counsel.  We imitate her and follow her lead so as to draw closer to her Son. 

Side Altar dedicated to Our Lady of Good Counsel

Our Parish patron Saint, Bl. Edmund Sykes, was a Yorkshire Martyr who died for the Catholic Faith. The whole Parish prays for his intercession and looks to his holy example.

We also pray for the intercession of St. Nicholas, the patron Saint of children.  The dedication of St. Nicholas’ Church also reflects Bl. Nicholas Postgate, the last of the York Martyrs, who was arrested while he was baptising a child.  For this reason, both Saints Nicholas are loved by the children and young families of the Parish.
