Message from the Rector:
I hope that most of you already know that I shall be leaving my post as Rector of Waddington at the end of September. During these difficult times it has been difficult to try and organise an opportunity for us all to meet together so that we can say our goodbyes. I wanted to let you know that there are three services in St Michael’s Church on Sunday 27th September, at 8.30am, 10.00am and 3.30 pm. If you would like to come to one of these please get in touch on 01673 838985, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org I do hope I shall see you again before I finish in Waddington! Best wishes, Revd Annabel
St Michael's is open!
The church is open for individual private prayer on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10.30 am to noon. Join us on Sunday afternoon's at 3.30 pm for our Early Evening Service.
Owing to social distancing regulations, the maximum capacity for this service is 19 people. You must wear a face covering , unless you have a valid exemption. As you arrive we will take your name and a contact number. (This is in case it is needed for the government's Covid-19 Track and Trace system.) We have taken all sensible precautions in reopening the church (cleaning, social distancing, etc), but only you know whether there are additional risks that make it unwise for you to visit church at the moment. Please do not come into church if you have Covid-19 symptoms.
As well as events in church, St Michael's is still very much alive - we are meeting and praying together as a ‘virtual community’. We use Zoom to hold online Sunday services at 10.00 am and 'Prayer Wave' services at 9.30 am on Wednesdays. Please contact the rector to get the Zoom 'meeting' details.
Members of St Michael's are busy making fabric face coverings for people in the parish. Please get in touch with either Rev'd Annabel (email@example.com) or Claire (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you need some cloth face coverings to use whilst out and about, e.g. on public transport during Covid. There is no charge for the face coverings, but donations towards the work of the church are welcomed.
We invite you to join with us in prayer (from your own home) each day. Say the Lord's Prayer, or use your own prayers for those who are anxious and unwell, as well as our NHS staff, carers and other essential workers who are keeping things going. Prayer, worship and helpful reflection resources will be regularly posted on this site and our Facebook page. If you would like to get these by email, please send your email address to email@example.com
Please do contact us if you have other ideas of how we can support the community and its prayer-life at this time.
Baptisms and Weddings
At the moment, there are restrictions in place for baptisms and weddings. If you would like to discuss how these may affect your event or reserve a date for later in the year, please call the Parish Administrator on 01522 881664 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
