St Michael's Heating Project
The heating contractors will be starting on site on Monday 8th September and plan to complete the renewal of the heating system by 27th October. There will inevitably be some disruption while the work is in progress. This is an unavoidable and urgent project. The interim arrangements are:

Worship at 8.00am and 9.30am will be held in church as usual.

  • Please remember to wear warm clothes as the autumn temperatures drop. If it becomes very cold worship may be conducted in the school hall.
  • Readers and intercessors please note that there will be no sound amplification, so voice projection will be important. Prayers will be read from the front of the church.
  • Much of the work will be focussed in the tower room and the adjacent area. Small children may be relocated during services elsewhere in the church.


  • The Wednesday school service will be held in Top School.
  • Wednesday communion will commence at 10.00am in the Parish Centre.
  • Choir practice will be held as normal in the choir vestry on Fridays and as far as the works permit, in the choir stalls on Sundays.
  • Sue Dyson and Imogen Broad will be liaising with the cleaning groups.
  • The church will be closed to visitors from Monday 8th September and there will be no further church watching for the rest of the season.
