Following government orders services have been suspended until further notice and the church building is now closed to visitors. (For arrangements concerning weddings and funerals, please contact the Vicar.)
If you wish prayers to be said for the world, or for you or your loved ones, send them to: email@example.com.
At the request of Thames Valley Police the car park to St Michael & All Angels Church has been closed.
The church youtube channel will now be used to broadcast St Michaels @ 10 every Sunday morning at 10.00 am with JC Club Online broadcast at 9.45 am. The latest video can be found below. Please subscribe to the channel to ensure you get updated when a new video goes up. The videos can also be found on the church Facebook page and the Services page will now host the most recent videos.
We are also now offering the option for people without access to the internet to listen to the service using their telephone. Please spread the word and these instructions to anyone you think might appreciate them:
Between 9.55 am and 10.00 am, call this number: 020 3481 5237
When asked for a "meeting ID", enter the number 951 289 9440 followed by #
When asked for a "participant ID", just press # once again
After that, listen to the music until the service starts just after 10.00 am
The cost of listening will depend on their telephone provider and whether they have any calls included with their contract: it will cost the same as a weekend telephone call to London.
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 07526 780096, email firstname.lastname@example.org 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 of the parish magazine has been suspended for the time being. This means that, from the April issue onwards, the magazine will be available in digital form only from the Parish Magazine page. A decision will be taken in due course on how to reimburse subscribers.
We would still welcome contributions for next month's issue, especially: stories about how you are coping; hints for amusing/educating home-schooled children; and recipes that can be made from things lurking in the backs of store cupboards! Articles can me emailed to email@example.com. The deadline is the 15th of each month. Thank you
The church is starting an online Alpha course, running for 11 weeks, starting on the 4th May. For more info see the Alpha Course page.
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.
