Plant Swap

On Saturday 10 June we are hosting a Plant Swap from 10am to 12pm in St Michael’s Centre (upper room)

It’s a fantastic opportunity to share surplus plants (and seeds) and pick up new plants. We ask for a small voluntary donations if you don’t bring any plants to swap. 

If you have grown too many seedlings or have divisions/cuttings of plants or self-sown seedlings, then bring them along to share with others.

All plants welcome: Flowers, Vegetables, divisions, cuttings, seeds, bulbs, annuals, perennials, houseplants etc.

Please label your plants/seeds and bring plants in single containers ready for people to take away. 

If you have plants to share, or if you would like more information, please contact Rebecca Bishop via the office, or just bring along your plants on the morning.

Clothes Swap

On Saturday 11 March we are holding a Clothes Swap 1.30pm – 4.30pm taking donations to raise money for Cancer Research UK. 

What is a Clothes Swap? 

It is described as “where people gather to exchange clothing that they no longer wear.  This helps in responsibly rehoming clothes that no longer have value to you but could be just the right thing for someone else’s wardrobe. In a world thriving on overproduction of clothes, a clothes swap is a way to extend the lifetime of the clothing we already own, and making our wardrobes more economic”. 

For this event, please bring men’s, women’s or child’s clothes, shoes or accessories that are of good quality, clean, dry, and wearable (no underwear please) to swap and update your wardrobe!  When you bring some clothes, you will be given a token to exchange up to 5 items, if you want to swap more you can, we just ask you make a donation.  If you don’t have any clothes to bring you can still take items for a donation, suggestions would be a minimum of ÂŁ1 or ÂŁ2 per item. 

We will be available to take clothes in exchange for tokens after the Sunday services on 5 March, and between 10-12 on Saturday 11 March (why not visit the Repair CafĂ© at the same time?) 

There will be Refreshments available during the swap event. 

If you are free to help on the day for some or all of the time, or can offer cakes for refreshments please get in touch.

Eco Church

Several members of St Michael’s have been working hard, on ways we can better our care for God’s world in our worship and teaching; in how we look after our buildings, in how we engage with our communities, and in our personal lifestyles. 

We are pleased to report that we have now achieved our A Rocha Eco Church Bronze Award. 

As you know the Eco Group have been working hard over the last few months and this work has been rewarded with us achieving our Eco Church Bronze Award. Our next meeting is on Wednesday 6 July 7pm in Seminar Room 2 where we will be looking at how we can progress towards achieving the Eco Church Silver Award, plus looking at what initiatives we can focus on going forward – all are welcome!
