Hospitality Teams


The wonderful celebrations we enjoy at Our Lady of Fatima including Spring and Christmas Fairs do not just ‘happen’, they are the fruit of much planning, coordination and prayer. Normally, we just focus on an upcoming event and recruit as many helpers as possible.  

The Evangelisation Group presently discuss ideas and initiatives for upcoming events and then these are passed on to the Events Team which is led by Fr Richard, Sylvie and Marie who then recruit the cooks and other volunteers depending on the event. 

Every event is different, therefore the requirements are unique to that particular event, hence needing helpers with all types of skills and ideas. Events either take place in the church, the chapel, the parish centre or the school playground and can range from big celebration parties to Bible studies, presentations, Bingo/Quiz nights and Sponsored Walks.

We currently have many super talented cooks who dedicate their time and donate their delicious cuisine to our celebrations, but we're always looking for volunteers who have different abilities and experiences. We need people who will organise the food, drinks and other activities such as face painting, tombola, raffle, etc., and help with setting up and clearing up - it is not compulsory to help at every event. 

If you would like to cook or just help out at certain events, please contact the presbytery (parish office). 


After our 11am Sunday service, please don't rush away! We meet at the front of the church for refreshments and to get together socially. It's a chance to meet and chat to other parishioners and our wonderful priests.

Our small team do such an awesome job each and every week. They set up the refreshments in the porch before mass, serve teas, coffees and a variety of yummy cakes and then clear and wash up in a blink of an eye.

Our delicious cakes are normally beautifully baked and donated by parishioners in order to raise extra funds for the parish and our supported charities. New recruits to keep this running are always welcome!

If you would like to join our Tea & Coffee Team or would like to bake and donate, please get in touch by contacting the presbytery (parish office).
