Member of the Inclusive Church network
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Claire (email@example.com) 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.
Following the latest guidance from the Archbishops, we have suspended all public worship at St Michael's Church until further notice and the building is closed. This means that all meetings, events and services on-site have been cancelled. Unfortunately we are unable to reopen the church for supervised private individual prayer at the moment. We are working to find a way to reopen in a safe and hygienic way as soon as possible.
The church is still very much alive, and we are meeting and praying together as a ‘virtual community’. We are using Zoom to hold virtual regular Sunday services at 10.00 am and 'Prayer Wave' prayer meetings at 9.30 am on Wednesdays. Please contact the rector by email to join us.
We invite you to join with us in prayer (from your own home) at 8.30 am and 4.30 pm 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
The sermon for Pentecost can be found here.
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, all baptisms and weddings for the next few weeks have been cancelled. If you would like to reserve a date for later in the year, please contact the Parish Administrator on 01522 881664 or email: email@example.com
