A CHRISTMAS LIKE NO OTHER

"Christ our Saviour is born to His mother

Worship with us this Christmas like no other"

 

Now that we will be allowed to resume public worship in our church from Wednesday 2nd December, we are able to plan our services and events for Advent and Christmas.

It won’t be like any Christmas which we have ever had before; some events can take place in the church, some will have to be streamed on Zoom, and some may even be on both!

Here’s the programme:


All events in the church will be subject to the same restrictions as before – social distancing must be maintained, hand sanitiser must be used, and masks must be worn. Capacity is limited to 30 people including clergy, and the door will be closed when we are full. We will not be using a booking scheme.
Please see this guidance sheet for more information.

Here are the full details:

29th November

The telephone numbers to dial are the same for all events; these are:

 

        020 3051 2874
        020 3481 5237
        020 3481 5240

Orders of service where appropriate will be available to download from our website https://smmh.org.uk closer to the time – watch this space.

 

In these difficult times, we are doing our best to ensure that everyone can have access to celebrations at St Michael’s church, whether it be in person or online.

It is really important that nobody feels compelled to attend worship in church.

Please make a decision that is right for you and your individual needs.

 

We wish you a happy Christmas, even though it is like no other.

We are unable to pass round the collection plate during services, but if you would like to make a contribution, you can do so here:
