Signpost 46 (15 March)

Good afternoon,

Over the last few months we have brought you some more focused issues of Signpost that have been based around a specific theme, and this week we are celebrating all things 'Ireland' in honour of St. Patrick's day. We look at the life of St. Patrick, the celebrations for him around the world, and some iconic Irish classics - from Guinness and Father Ted, to the Giant's Causeway.

We hope you enjoy it!


  • St. Patrick's Day is now celebrated globally, and the focus is often on the theme of Ireland as a whole rather than Patrick himself. You can read the story of St. Patrick's life here and the website “Theology of Work” has a written a reflection in honour of St. Patrick here.





  • Father Ted is a sitcom that focuses on three priests living on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland. It has become a beloved cult classic since it first came to our screens in 1995. Channel 4’s website allows you to watch Father Ted here, but you do need to sign up as a member. You can do this by clicking this link and putting in the details they ask for.

Please get in touch through our email and let us know how we are doing.

Don't forget that our online services of worship and contributions from the Pastoral Care Team can be found at
