We love people to dig deeper into the life of faith and run regular and occasional opportunities to support this. At least once a year there is an Exploring Christianity group for those who want to find out more about the key building blocks of Christianity. We often run a Bible study and there is a house group which meets to reflect, pray and socialise. Forthcoming study opportunities are listed on this week’s notice sheet.
St Michael’s and St Mary’s support FEED foodbank based at the St Albans Vineyard Fellowship. Much more than food is dispensed. Volunteers also provide help, support and advice in caring for those who are at difficult or vulnerable points in their life. Items may be brought to St Michael’s on a Sunday or Wednesday and put in the FEED collection box in the Tower Room. Items brought to St Mary’s will be taken to St Michael’s and sent on to FEED.
FEED would be grateful for the following donations:

The Friends exist to “maintain, repair, renew, improve and enhance the structure and fabric, furnishings, memorials and fittings of the Church of St.Michael, St.Albans.” The appeal of the Friends has always been to people who, while not necessarily churchgoers, nevertheless feel the presence of St.Michael’s to be of vital importance in the local community. Over the years they have raised £120,000 – hard work, but good fun.
The Friends is managed by a small committee. Membership is open to all with the annual subscription of five pounds per person and ten pounds for a family.
