St Michael's Church Lighting
St Michael's lighting system has been replaced recently following a fire in one of the old ceiling lights in 2014. The LED system which has been installed runs on a much lower power, reducing the fire risk and making the system cheaper to run.

The new system has cost GBP 30,000. Anyone wishing to support this work is warmly invited to send a cheque to the Parish Office, St Michael's Vicarage, St Michael's Street, St Albans AL3 4SL made payable to "St Michael's PCC". Please include a covering note stating that it is intended to support the lighting system.

Alternatively you can make a donation via the Just Giving on the Support Us page in this website.

Thank you for support.

Lighting Equipment For Sale
Now that the new lighting system has been successfully installed, the LED floodlights that were used as a temporary measure in St Michael's are now available for sale. They have been cleaned and tested for electrical safety and they would make an ideal work, or security light either in or out of doors and they have a much lower running temperature and power consumption than the tungsten halogen equivalents. Prices are 40 GPB for a 30 watt unit and 50 GBP for a 50 watt unit.

Pleas contact the Parish Office to place an order. Payment by cash or cheque made payable to St Michael's Parochial Church Council. All monies received will be treated as donations towards the cost of the new lighting system and as such could be gift aided. Disposal of the previous lighting equipment is now being considered. If members of the congregation know of specific persons or organisations who might be interested, please contact Bob May on 01727,853695.
