The parish, which runs a major Child Care Centre, has a long and close affiliation with The Bishop Strachan Girls School.  Lay ministry and learning, inclusion and hospitality, are highly valued and encouraged, as is collaboration with local community groups. The parish fosters weekly child and adult learning, ALPHA courses, and seasonal enrichments running every Sunday morning.
