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.

We would like to express a huge thank you to those who have already made a donation. As at 6th January 2015, the total amount received (including anticipated Gift Aid) was nearly GBP 48,000. 99 known donors have contributed most of this sum. Over half of these are not on the parish Electoral Roll, testament to the success of appealing to the wider parish via seasonal publicity. If you have yet to help the heating fund, could you consider a donation during 2015?
