St Michael's Heating Appeal
The new heating system has now been installed in St Michael's church and it has replaced the old system.
Those who were in St Michael's on November 16th heard the invitation from the stewardship committee that we consider
what contribution parishioners might make towards the cost of the renewal of the heating system. We have
been able to do the heating project and to secure St Michael's mission as a warm welcoming building for a warm welcoming community.
It is vital that we refloat the reserves. We have eaten into our income-generating capacity and there may be future
needs to which we want to make a similarly swift response. We owe it to future generations that we are as prudent for them as they have been for us.
For more information concerning the heating appeal, please go to the Heating Appeal page.
