Worship presently looks different during this period when we cannot gather because of coronavirus.

Pre-recorded

A regular Sunday service is available on St Michaels and St Marys Youtube channel where you will also find occasional broadcasts of midweek services and reflections. Accompanying texts may be found our Digital Services webpage.

The Life of Jesus in Minecraft is being developed by an auxiliary Youtube channel, MamaRhinoGamer, and is proving popular with parishioners of all ages!

Live

Morning Prayer is being said via Zoom at 9am Monday to Thursday. It lasts about twenty minutes. If you wish to attend on one or more days of the week, please email Charles King for an invitation to the Zoom group.

At home

We have developed simple worship sheets for those who like to pray with hard copy. In addition to your own needs, do you have any friends or neighbours without internet access for whom you could print the following?

Materials for St Michael’s Primary School Wednesday service are being distributed via the school parentmail. If you are not a school parent and would like to receive these, please email Kenneth

Wider resources

Further online worship resources and pastoral support are available on our coronavirus webpage.

The journey back to ‘normal’

We are anticipating a tapered return towards services in church together and are actively planning for possible scenarios. Information will be updated on this website but please subscribe to our newsletter by emailing Kenneth to stay in touch with developments as they happen.
