Meetings start at 7.00pm with an open forum where parishioners can ask questions and raise issues. The open forum is limited to 30 minutes unless there is a significant matter to discuss.

Agendas for the monthly meetings are posted a week beforehand on the parish notice board and on these pages. Draft minutes are also put on the notice board and then approved at the next meeting.
