Its been great over the past few days to see groups of of children, parents and more than a few adults that seem to have forgotten the children hunting Pokemon on The Green and around the Church.
The Church, Old School Rooms & War Memorial are all Pokestops so why not let the kids go hunting whilst you sit outside the Coffee Shop and enjoy one of our freshly made coffees – you can even use the free wifi so you save some data for your own Pokemon hunting later on.
Just please try not to catch any during the services on Sunday!
We are holding a party for all primary school age children on Saturday 31st October. This is a lovely event which encourages children to focus on Jesus and the light he brings into the world, instead of the darkness which Halloween celebrates. The Light Party will be in the Old School Rooms from 4pm to 5.30pm. There will be crafts, games (including a treasure hunt in the dark for sweets hidden around the building) and party food. To book a place email firstname.lastname@example.org
Whilst the weather is cooling down, things are hotting up at St Michael’s in the run up to Christmas!
This Saturday is another packed day – with our monthly Saturday Breakfast at 8.30am in the Old School Rooms. This month we welcome Mark Rich from Christians Against Poverty.
Then at 6.15pm it is time for one of our favourites – Carols on the Green. There will be a traditional brass band; mulled wine, hot drinks and hot dogs available to buy; and lots of the carols you’d expect to hear. We look forward to seeing you there if you can make it.
Also a reminder that this Sunday we have our Children’s Christmas Presentation at 10.30am. This will be in the Old School Rooms and we will all be together (no seperate service in church). We can’t wait to see what they’ve prepared for us!
And finally, on Sunday it is Christmas Kainos (for 11-18’s), with the fantastically titled – Carols by Glowstick!
This is on top of our usual services in church at 9am and 6.30pm.
Full details of all the upcoming Christmas services at St Michael’s can be found here.
This Sunday 30th November, is our termly Uniform Group and Family Worship service. We love having all the uniform groups together to worship. And as this will be our Christmas service, we invite those coming to bring items of chocolate or biscuits to be given to organisations helping those in need.
There will be a party for all school age children on 31st October. This is to encourage children to focus on Jesus and the light he brings into the world, instead of the darkness which Halloween celebrates. There are leaflets available at the back of church, which explain why this is a better approach. The Light Party will be in the Old School Rooms from 4pm to 5.30pm – if your child would like to come please email Karen Needham on
