In line with instructions from the Archbishops of Canterbury & York we regret to inform you that all public worship must cease for the time being.
The Church continues to be alive and active, but our buildings must close
We are seeing a huge increase in the number of people falling sick with COVID-19. We must distance ourselves from one another and prevent the spread of infection in order to save lives.
Therefore, as well as public worship being suspended, St. Michael’s Church, and all church buildings in the Church of England are now closed.
