Notices w/c 18th April

Eastertide best wishes as we continue to celebrate the Resurrection of Christ through this season. This coming Tuesday is my 5th anniversary of being licensed as Vicar of Saint Michael’s. I am filled with thanksgiving for this place and all of you, all that God is doing among us in this parish. It is such a great joy to be here as your priest. May I humbly ask that you say a prayer for me and for Saint Michael’s on that day?

The Annual Parochial Church Meeting will now take place on Monday 17th May. Evening Prayer at 7.30pm with the meeting at 8pm. Revision of the Electoral Roll (the list of church members). A copy of the current roll is on the noticeboard at the back of the church. The roll will be updated in preparation for the Annual Meeting. The roll is an important reflection of the strength of our church community.  If you are not already on the Electoral Roll, please do complete a form, as it is important that all those who consider St Michael’s to be their church are on it.  The form can be found here with hard copies available at the back of church. It is one form per person (not household) and you can be on the roll of more than one church at the same time. Forms need to be completed and returned by 18th April.
