This weekend

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.
 
It looks set to be a great weekend!
 

Celebrating 150 years of serving the community

To mark 150 years of serving the community St Michael’s Church and St Michael’s Primary School are hosting an open-air service of celebration followed by a family fun day.

It’s 150 years since the Old School Rooms – back then a new Victorian village school – first opened. The celebration service is taking place in front of the Old School Rooms on the village green. It will feature songs and stories from pupils past and present, Victorian hymns and a prize for those who come in Victorian dress!

Sunday 23rd June

11.00am

Stoke Gifford Village Green

Bring your own picnic lunch and stay on afterwards for games, a photo exhibition by the school, an opportunity to watch the Heart of the Community project DVD, and the last chance to visit the site of the Old Barns before the diggers arrive in early July!

The whole community is invited, but pupils of St Michael’s School, past and present, are especially welcome.
