Due to the coronavirus pandemic we have not been able to hold the annual service for Christian Unity that is hosted by one of our local churches. However, so that we can unite together and pray for Christian Unity the local ministers have come together to record an online service that you might wish to participate in.
Following the government's announcement on 4th January St Michael's remains open for public worship. However we must be more vigilant than ever in following the government's rules relating to church services:"You can attend places of worship for a service. However, you must not mingle with anyone outside your household or support bubble. You should maintain strict social distancing at all times."
help the authorities with Track & Trace should it be necessary, we
request you bring a piece of paper with your name and contact number to
hand in at the church. All names of a family but only one contact number
is required. Alternatively scan the church's QR code using the NHS
Covid-19 App. You are not obliged to give this information to attend
