On the advice of the diocese, all churches are to be closed for services with effect from Thursday 5 November. Our church will remain open for private prayer, as well as funeral services, but we will be reverting back to our St Michael's @ 10 online service.
We had also planned to commence a new Tuesday 11.00 am Holy Communion service, but that is now on hold as well, until further notice.
It is anticipated that the next time we will be inviting a congregation to be present for services in person will be Sunday 13 December, when it is hoped that there will be a 9.00 am Matins, an 11.00 am Service of Holy Communion, and 6.00 pm Evensong - confirmation of these arrangements will be nearer the time.
We are anticipating just offering St Michael's @ 10 live-streamed from Church on Sunday 6th December, in order that we might have the time and capacity to be able to pre-record some of our Christmas services the same day.
We will continue to ensure that all of our services have the appropriate Covid-19 safety precautions in place, which include a limited congregation, social distancing, hand gel, and no congregational singing.
(For arrangements concerning weddings and funerals, please contact the Vicar.)
The church youtube channel will show St Michaels @ 10 at 10.00 am every Sunday morning.
The Services page will now host the most recent videos.
JC Club Online videos are broadcast each Sunday at 9.45 am on the church YouTube channel. Activity sheets for the videos can be found on the Youth page.

As a response to the present situation, we have restarted our team to support anyone in our community who may need some friendly assistance. Should you need help with shopping or collection of medicines do let us know. If you would just like someone to talk with on the phone, discuss a worry or to pray with you, we have people who would love to help.
If you have problems where you need some advice or have struggled to get help elsewhere we will try and signpost you to the right assistance. We will be very happy to do this and look forward to hearing from you.
Please pass this information on to any local contacts.
An online version of the weekly notice sheet is now up. It will be published every Sunday until we are able to resume services.
The printing and distribution of physical copies resumed with the July/August edition. The magazine will remain available in digital form on the Parish Magazine page.
For those who pay annually for delivery of Outlook: when next year’s ‘subs’ are collected, the charge will be reduced to £5 to take account of the editions published only online.
Let us join in praying that God would continue to watch over us and keep us safe, especially during these times of great uncertainty.
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
