SERVICES AT ST MICHAEL'S SUSPENDED
Due to the increase in cases of COVID-19 in Barnet, we are suspending public worship in St Michael's church.
The church is closed, and all services will now be conducted on Zoom.
Sunday Parish Mass will be said at 10:30am and 6:00pm.
We shall continue to have Morning Prayer every day Monday to Saturday at 10:00am; for practical reasons our weekday Mass will now be said on Mondays at 10:30am.
We can't pass around the collection plate, but you can make a donation online using Give A Little here.
See our page about Stewardship during COVID to see other ways in wich you can help.
On Sunday 1st November, Keiko Kitamura (Koto) played ‘Sakura Variations’
composed by Tadao Sawai, and her own composition ‘Water Ripples’
during the last public service at St Michael's before lockdown.
Sunday 4th October 2020 should have been our Harvest Festival, but unfortunately we were not able to celebrate it in these difficult times.
Normally, our church would be adorned with contributions of food, toiletries and clothes, which we would then donate to Homeless Action in Barnet and the Colindale Foodbank.
Both charities have been hard hit as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and need support now more than ever.
Although we can’t give them cans of food, toothbrushes, nappies and socks, it is still possible to make donations online:

We might think of ourselves, in the beginning, as a simple piece of paper ...
