St Michael's & All Angels, Hughenden is currently having two morning services at 9.00 am and 11.00 am each Sunday and Evensong at 6.00 pm.
Due to recently exceeding our permitted maximum number of people attending a service, the service booking system is being reintroduced until further notice. To book contact our Parish Administrator Lynn Brooks on 07928 536543 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Booking is strongly recommended, so please spread the word to others!
Our services will initially look and sound quite different to those we have been accustomed to at Hughenden. Sadly no singing by the congregation is currently permitted in church, but the choir and music band can sing. For communion services, we will be only offering bread to consume, in order to comply with the current guidelines. The service leader will give you helpful instructions at the start of each service, to hopefully answer any questions you might have, and allay any fears.
Toilet facilities will be available as normal, and you will be encouraged to use the hand sanitiser provided upon entry and exit to church.
The congregation is required to wear a face covering of some description in Church - unless of course you have an exemption for a medical reason. This is an important and practical way in which we can demonstrate our care to other member's of our church family. Thank you for your understanding.
(For arrangements concerning weddings and funerals, please contact the Vicar.)
The church youtube channel will now be used to live-stream one morning service every Sunday.
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.
A St Michael & All Angels Support Team is in place to support our church family and community and to help those who need a listening and friendly voice on the phone; especially mindful of those who are housebound and/or self-isolating. To get in touch with them for prayer, pastoral support or even just to have a chat, call 07850 150462, email email@example.com or contact us on Facebook or Instagram.
Practical support for things such as shopping, prescription collecting, dog walking etc. is being offered by various groups within our parish. The links to the current groups can be found at the bottom of this page and more will be added as they are set up.
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.
