St Michael's December 2021:

  • Sundays: you can attend the main 10am service online or onsite. Online you can participate fully in the worship and talk to others. Onsite our Covid measures still apply but you can receive Holy Communion. Online or onsite you would be very welcome to join us. Send us a message using the Contact tab above.
  • Keeping everyone safe - all our anti Covid-19 arrangements continue (sanitiser, face covering, registration, social distancing, one way system in the building) and the worship is still restricted  (Peace by sign language only, singing is restricted, and no common cup is shared). 
  • Limited use of the building - we remain active online and have restricted the use of the building as part of our anti Covid strategy. We have begun to welcome back some of our friends from other Christian denominations on a limited basis. 
  • Advent Preparations - we are collecting pants, socks and chocolates for the Gatehouse, building an outside nativity display, posting daily on our social media channels (please like, share and subscribe).
  • Holy Communion: If anyone would like Communion at Home please use the Contact tab above. The Vicar is able to provide Communion for you in a Covid secure way on request.
  • Inclusive Church: we are formally affiliated to the Inclusive Church Network - if you scroll to the bottom of this page you will find the logo - click on this and it will take you to a new website providing more details about this.
