Parish Groups

Prayer Partners:

During Advent, and again between Ascension and Pentecost, St Mahew's has a prayer link with members of the local Church of Scotland.  With a partner or partners, the group follow the liturgical readings of the day and a variety of reflections and prayers.  These are based partly on a desire for Christian Unity, but also focus on matters of general current concern and those of particular importance to members of the group.  Some members choose to contact each other by phone, but  there is no need to meet up, or to attend a church service.  This aspect enables people who have a busy lifestyle, or those who are housebound, to play an active part.


Support for the Helensburgh and Lomond Foodbank: 

The Foodbank provides assistance, without need for a referral,  to people in the following areas: Ardlui, Arrochar, Cardross, Clynder, Cove, Garelochhead, Helensburgh, Kilcreggan, Luss, Rhu, Rosneath and Tarbet.  (Our nearest distribution point is at the Red Cross Hall, 116 East Princes Street, Helensburgh, on Monday and Friday mornings from 10-00am to 12 noon.)  At St. Mahew's we have a box in the porch once a month to receive any food items to be donated.  This coincides with our Mix and Mingle, usually held on the final Sunday of each month.


Mix and Mingle: 

A gathering after Sunday Mass, in the church, since we have no hall, to allow the congregation to have a chat over a drink of tea / coffee / juice and a biscuit.  We are a Fairtrade church, so the refreshments are, whenever possible, from a Fairtrade source.  The Mix and Mingle is usually held on the last Sunday of the month, with any change being noted in the bulletin of the previous week-end.


We are a Church family, and Mix & Mingle is a great opportunity to get to know others at church, meet new parishioners, welcome visitors...

Please join us for a cuppa and a chat!
