This Week and Beyond at St Michael's
The Parish Church is now officially closed during the "Stay home. Save Lives. Support the NHS" Measures:
The Government announced on Monday 23rd March that we must stay at home with only 4 possible exceptions. As part of this our church is now permanently closed for as long as these current measures for social isolation remain in force. We remain active as a Christian community of prayer and service.
We are proud to support these measures to save lives and support our NHS. There is now a Blog section on this website you might like to browse too. Here we are posting up some appropriate reflections and resources.
- We have a resource for praying for the Departed if you wish to use it. It can be downloaded by clicking here.
