In light of the Government guidance around non-essential contact, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued advice that public worship is suspended until further notice. As a consequence, there will be no Sunday or weekday services for the immediate future at St Michael’s or at All Saints’.
Please see a message from Deborah here.
Church is Not Closed
For the time being we will not be meeting together for services in St Michael’s or All Saints and we are unable to enter the buildings.
We are working on other ways to keep us connected via the website, email and telephone. Deborah will be using our new daily prayer list so that she can pray for each one of you over the course of the month. But please let us know if you fall ill or are anxious. We trust ourselves into God’s care.
In the meantime, the Church of England has offered some resources to help those who are struggling to find words at this difficult and stressful time, and to enable Christians to worship in solidarity with one another.
This page contains prayers and intercessions for personal or group use, special prayers for use if it isn’t possible to meet in church, and a simple form of prayer for the morning and evening.
