St Laurence’s − Building Up Parish Life

We want St Laurence’s to be an active, welcoming, friendly Parish. It would be a great help to know a little more about our parishioners, and to be able to contact you if needed.

Do please take a few minutes to fill out this form. Any information provided will be held securely by the Parish Office and used only to support pastoral work or to contact you about news or activities.

Please provide your name and contact details below, and then complete the declaration at the bottom of the page. All other information is optional.

Note: all are welcome at St Laurence’s at all times. This is not a membership form, and filling out the form is optional. But we’d love to know about anyone who worships with us, whether Catholic or non-Catholic. Younger parishioners can fill out their own form or be included on a parent / carer’s form (see Children and young people below).
