Our Lady Of The Assumption Catholic Parish
Our Lady of the Assumption Parish aims to be a community of welcome. We are striving to achieve a real sense of belonging for everyone. We aim to ensure that there is support and celebration for all family life.

The Baptism preparation team is the start; out children's liturgy at the Sunday Mass and our excellent parish based preparation for sacraments ensure that children and their families feel valued members of our parish community and that they have something valuable to contribute.

Various groups and activities are arranged to help and support parents in their task as parents and especially as the first educators of their children in the ways of faith. There are opportunities throughout the year (especially in Lent and Advent) for groups to meet that will nourish and strengthen faith.

Many of our parish groups cater for the needs of the older parishioners. There are social events, pilgrimages, holidays and outings that involve a wide age range. Our housebound and sick parishioners are cared for wonderfully by our Eucharistic Ministers. Our Church services offer a variety of styles of worship and liturgy, something we hope to nourish everyone.

If you are married, single, divorced, separated, remarried, widowed, straight, gay, young, middle aged or old or just searching you are invited to share our parish life.  All are welcome, especially if you have been away from Church life for a time.  We hope there is something here for everyone. 



Our Lady of the Assumption Parish was founded in 1949, when it was originally a prefab building, opposite Chislehurst Ave, on the “prefab estate”. (The 1st Mass was celebrated on May 29th 1949). A permanent structure was built in 1965. The Church opened on 29th March 1965. St Gregory’s was founded at the same time as Netherley, being built in 1970, St Cyril's was opened in 1967.

There are 2 closed churches that were part of the parish: St Cyril’s Church was closed in May 2009 and St Gregory's in April 2011.

The Parish is part of a Pastoral Area made up of Christ the King and Our Lady, Our Lady of the Annunciation, St Ambrose, St Christopher, St John Vianney and St Mary. Fr Grant Maddock is the Dean.
