Notices

For all previous notices and news, please see the week’s pew sheet on our Weekly Information page.

We have now removed the social distancing tapes from the main body of the nave but, for those who remain concerned about sitting too close to others, greater space remains in the pews in the south aisle and on the blue chairs on in north aisle.  Please continue to use the hand sanitizer provided and wear a face covering.


With the easing of lockdown we hope that it may not be too long before we can begin the business of RESTARTING OUR CHOIR and further enhancing the music in church.  As well as appealing to our former choir members, if you are interested in joining a happy band of singers please watch out for a meeting very soon.

The Tower Project

Tower Project News  See our Belltower page for updates and the new 2021 video.

Monday August 9th 2021 was a very special day for Alnwick. On that day 10 bells were delivered to St. Michael’s and for the only time they were on display in the church for all to see before they were lifted into the belfry.

At 7pm there was a short service of blessing by The Very Revd. Mark Wroe, Bishop of Berwick. It was followed by light refreshments and further opportunity to see the bells. We looked forward to welcoming all who want to take advantage of this once in a lifetime chance to see this magnificent ring of ten bells.

Thursday 12th August 6-7pm  all 10 bells have been rung in practice for the first time.


On Wednesday 29th September the new Bells rang out for Alnwick for the Service of Dedication at 7pm by Bishop Mark. To hear them ring, see our Belltower page.

 

Please note that service links may not be active until shortly before the service begins.
