Coronavirus Update

OUR TWO CHURCHES ARE NOW CLOSED

Both our Churches are now closed on Government instruction until further notice but do not hesitate to contact us on the number below or by email if you need us to pray for you and your family or if we can help in any other way.

PLEASE CONSIDER MAKING A DONATION TO ST. MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL AND THE CHURCH OF THE ASCENSION

We ask you to consider making a donation to keep our two Churches going during this closedown which has a severe impact on our essential income. There are still bills that need to be paid and essential repairs and maintenance. Please consider making a direct electronic payment or setting up a standing order to our parish bank account - the details are as follows:

Message from our  vicar, Revd. Alwyn Pereira

"CLOSED BUT STILL HERE..."

The Coronavirus pandemic is the crisis of a generation and the scale of its impact is as yet unknowable. What we do know is that God is the same yesterday, today and forever - loving, good, faithful and present among his people. This is the time for his body, the Church, to be a light in the world, to love neighbours as ourselves, to serve our communities and to worship God with all our hearts as we take each day as it comes.

Our Services are cancelled until further notice due to social distancing. We may not be able to gather together as we normally do, but we are here if you need prayerful or practical support.

In addition, there will be various online, webcasts and other social media gatherings.

These will be announced - so please watch out for them.

Should you need prayer then please ring the Vicar, Revd. Alwyn Pereira on 01252 314389 or email: vicarstma@gmail.com or Facebook messenger.

If at this time you need very practical support like essential shopping and you are in a vulnerable group or self-isolating, then please contact:

ARCAction Group on helpline 01252 214022 or email: ArcActionGroup@gmail.com

Help will then be on its way.

Please take heed and do not be complacent about the dangers of this outbreak. 

Stay safe and pray Psalm 91 below, which reminds us of God's truth for us.

Together, we can overcome this.

THIS IS YOUR COMMUNITY

If any want to continue regular giving to St. Michael's and the Church of the Ascension, and are willing to switch to bankers orders in place of cash or the envelope schemes then please contact Dick Fawn on 01252 627455.
