RESUMING SERVICES AT ST MICHAEL'S
From Sunday 26th July we will be resuming public services on Sundays.
This is an opportunity for the first time since lockdown to meet in the church building for our parish Mass at 10:30.
We will be opening the church doors at 10:15 and the doors will close at 10:35.
The maximum number we can safely accommodate in church is 24 worshippers and 3 ministers.
Entry will be on a first come first served basis and we advise you to arrive early to avoid disappointment.
There will be no admittance after 10:35.
All attendees are strongly advised to wear facemasks unless there is a medical reason that makes this impossible for you.
We also ask that all worshippers sanitise their hands on entry, follow our one way system and maintain social distancing throughout. Communion will be offered in the form of bread only.
Please do not attend worship if you have any concerns whatsoever about your health and especially please do NOT attend if you have a high temperature or persistent dry cough.
If we have more than 24 people wishing to attend worship and you arrive after church is full we will offer you either to sit outside and communion will be brought out to you at the distribution.
Alternatively, I will be happy to have another Mass at 11:45 if there is demand for this - however this will not be held unless we have overflow at the 10:30.
If there is no demand the church will be open as usual for private prayer until 13:30.
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.
For the time being, in line with Government guidance, there will be no communal singing.
Neither will we be able to share refreshments after the service.
We are unable to take a collection during the service, but if you do wish to make a donation, you can do so here.
The Zoom service will continue every Sunday at the new time of 18:00 and it is my hope that this will be considered as an equally valid form of worship as any service that is held in church.
Christ says that when just two or three are gathered together in His name He is present in their midst and this is the case whether online or in church.
Please see the link below (please note that this is a new link as the service is now at 18:00).
The service will be identical whether on Zoom at 18:00 or in church at 10:30.
Please share the zoom link with those who may wish to dial in by phone and are not in receipt of the email.
