The parish has many active groups led by enthusiastic parishioners. The Parish Contact Us page also gives information on people's roles within the parish. A brief summary of the parish committees and some activity groups are given below. Parish Committee/Group Leaders In 2009, the Parish has undertook a major review of how its parishioners may play a more active role in the various ministries required to run the parish and hence allow its Parish Priest to focus on his sacramental and pastoral ministries. This resulted in a large number of parishioners who came forward to participate. Leaders have been appointed for eigth groups of activities with many others being appointed for defined supporting roles, based on detailed descriptions of the functions. The leaders of the groups now form the Parish Committee which meet monthly under the chairmanship of the Parish Priest. The first meeting of the new Parish Committee meeting was held on the 1st September 2009 and prior to that meeting, meetings have been held by the new group leaders with their support teams. Parish Finance Committee The Parish Finance Committee has responsibility for the Parish's finances and property. It also acts as advisor to the Parish Priest on financial matters. It comprises, a Chairman, two members who normally attend St Ambrose Church and two members who normally attend All Saints Church. Social Committee A parish social committee arranges social events. Social events include special celebrations, parish outings, country walks, quizzes and from time to time dances and bazaars. Mission and Unity (Ecumenical)  The parish has relationships within Churches Together groups in Oxted and Warlingham and maintains much of its ecumenical activity within these communities. Parishioners participate in joint services, acts of worship, fundraising and social events with other Christian churches in the local area. Parish Activities
