St Michael & All Angels Church is delighted to welcome everyone. Our mission is to encounter and develop a loving relationship with God, and to take the gospel out into the community in love and service while providing a supportive Christian fellowship. We are a friendly, welcoming church. We wish to continue and develop our work with families with less formal worship, while continuing our services focussed on sacramental spirituality and prayer following the liturgical year. We believe in living our faith through care for others in the local and wider community as well as within the church membership. We desire to share our belief that Jesus loves us whatever our race, gender etc and in his summary of the commandments to love God and our neighbours as ourselves.

As we know, Christmas is very different this year and, to keep us all safe, that goes for Christmas worship too. So our Crib/Nativity Service will be virtual and carol services at which we can sing will only be possible outdoors. These will be publicised separately. Despite everything, there will be plenty of ways for us to fully celebrate Christmas and joyfully welcome the Christ child!
At St Michael’s there will be the usual pattern of in church worship – 10am on Sundays and 9 am on Wednesdays – up to and including Wednesday 23rd December. Thereafter, special Christmas Services will be:
Christmas Eve – 8.00 pm – Holy Communion with recorded carols
Christmas Eve – 11.15 pm – Holy Communion with recorded carols
Christmas Morning – 10 am – Family Service with Holy Communion and recorded carols
SEATING FOR THESE THREE SERVICES WILL BE ALLOCATED IN ADVANCE

- Please allow extra time to register your details on arrival.
- Inside the church 2m social distancing will separate individuals and family groups/”bubbles”.

- In line with Government requirements please do not mingle/socialise with others at the service, before or afterwards – sorry, we know this is hard!
I know we all regret the strangeness of these times – and particularly the requirement to pre-book Christmas services – but we still have much to be thankful for, not least the God-given skills of those in the medical profession who have cared for us throughout this pandemic and the scientists who have developed the vaccines which will bring normality back into our lives in 2021. And so in our Advent watching and waiting, we send every blessing for the Comfort and Joy of the season to come.
