About Newman Faith Group


We are a friendly group at various levels of understanding of our faith who share a love of God

and a desire to learn more about our faith in order to grow closer to God.

You do not need to commit to coming weekly only when you can - lifts given if needed. 

You do not have to be part of our Parish to join us.

You can join us even if you just want to explore the Catholic faith

We are a mixed group from 25 years to 85 years!


What is the purposes of  the Faith Group?



By studying the Bible and our Catholic Traditions we grow in faith and closeness to God

A desire to pass on what we learn to others both to convert and bring nominal Catholics alive in their faith.

To give and receive support, especially in our faith.

To deepen our Catholic identity


What is the Agenda for the Faith Group?


  Meeting starts with refreshments and fellowship

  Prayer and Hymns
  Evangelism – responding to the question: "How have I shared my faith recently?”
  A Teaching - 30-45 mins- for example a DVD or talk
  Discussion focused on the content
  A period of Intercessory prayer, in which the needs of all members, the parish, our country and the world are presented to the Lord.


Although the members are encouraged spiritually in teaching and sharing, the main focus is always ‘Evangelising'.The Catholic Church exist

to spread the message of Christ.This simply means reaching out to fellow parishioners, friends,family and colleagues through prayer and witness.

Socials:Several times a year,sometimes we go out for meals or watch movies with a Christian theme.


Mission Statement

We believe that by having a better understanding of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic faith, we grow closer to Jesus Christ in all that we do. We come to love the beauty and great traditions of the Catholic Church, and we will burn with the desire to evangelise with confidence. We pray that we may bring many souls to the knowledge and love of God, in a world that has lost direction and its moral compass.

2 Timothy 1:7

God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but the Spirit of power and love and self-control. So you are never to be ashamed of witnessing to our Lord, or ashamed of me for being his prisoner; but share in my hardships for the sake of the gospel, relying on the power of God
