Welcome!

We are a group of young Roman Catholics, roughly in the twenties to thirties age range, from the diocese of Clifton, Bristol. We meet socially for drinks at Channings very near Clifton Cathedral after the 6pm Sunday Mass at the Cathedral and for other events such as walks, the cinema, etc.

You don't have to go to the Cathedral to come along - it's open to everyone.

You can join us by emailing tntclifton@gmail.com or just meet us as we gather at the back of the Cathedral on Sundays after Mass to walk over to Channings - you won't miss us!
