The church building is closed

It is important to be leading in the efforts to demonstrate the necessity for social distancing to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 infection and save lives. We will continue to minister to you by holding services online and finding new ways of being Church in our local communities.

Please contact Fr Stephen or any of the clergy at any time if you need to. Fr Stephen can be contacted on vicar@stmichaelbarnes.org or 020 8878 7589. Please also let us know if you are self-isolating so that you can be prayed for and supported as required.

The suspension of public worship, and the whole crisis we are facing, provides a dramatically new perspective on what it means to walk with Christ on the Way of the Cross during Lent and Holy Week, and to share in the joy of his Risen Life at Easter. As difficult as this time is, let us also see it as an opportunity to be more faithful, to spend time in contemplation and prayer, and to increase in love for our neighbours and community. This is a time that tests our faith, but may also be a time of renewal when we learn what it means to be a disciple of Christ and beacon of God’s light and hope.
