Staying Connected

From 10am on Sunday, 26 April, St Michael’s will be offering online worship which is available below on the website, and on our YouTube channel. This will allow us to maintain our communal Christian life without compromising health and wellbeing.

Following the service, at 10:30am, we will enjoy a virtual get together over coffee, via Zoom. If you would like to join us for this, please email Andrew Duff on duffandrew@btinternet.com for the meeting ID, password, or for any questions about using Zoom.

In addition to this, we also have some groups meeting for fellowship and to pray Compline together on weekday evenings via Zoom – if you would like to know more about these or join in, please contact our Curate, the Rev’d Gerard Rundell (rev.g.rundell@gmail.com).

Alongside the resources offered by St Michael’s, we also encourage you to make use of the virtual and livestreamed services, daily prayer, and other resources on the Church of England website.

24/7 Lockdown Prayer: 29/5/2020-30/5/2020
