We Welcome You!

From the Vicar

We are taking a break from our online services and daily emails from 20th -25th, as we would like to  to take stock. If you wish, please let us know your thoughts on what you feel the future role of the various online services and the daily email might best be. All comments welcome! You can get in touch via Twitter, Facebook or by emailing vicar@smng.org.uk

Public Worship

The Church Council has decided that St. Michael’s would re-open its doors for Public Worship on Sundays with our customary service of Holy Communion at 8:00am. We are also resuming our weekly Wednesday service of Compline at 5.30pm.

Government and Church of England guidance has been followed in the preparation thereof and the risk assessment (which now also incorporates our risk assessment for opening for private prayer) and guidance for worshippers are available here.

If you think you may be attending either service, please could you email Rev Anthony Buckley on vicar@smng.org.ukYou will understand that, for social distancing reasons, an idea of numbers would be useful at this time.

Private Prayer

We are delighted to be able once again to open our doors to individuals and households, for private prayer. We have served our city, nation and world for a thousand years, and our doors were open through many previous calamities. We hope you will find peace, comfort and tranquillity in praying once again in our building. If you wish to be in touch with me, please email vicar@smng.org.uk or contact the office and ask them to arrange a call or meeting, on 01865240940.

Please see below for guidance to individuals and households who wish to visit us for private prayer. The risk assessment above now also includes our opening for Private Prayer.

We are open daily between 11am and 5pm. We will post any further updates on this page.

With very best wishes,

Revd. Anthony Buckley
