As some will know, there are plans for the Diocese to sell part of the large Vicarage garden at St.Michaels and for it to be redeveloped for housing, the PCC of St.Michaels has voted in favour of this initiative. The official announcement is:


'A Notice giving the objects of proposed pastoral reorganisation affecting this parish has been displayed near the main door and on the Church of England website. The Notice includes the last date by which representations regarding the proposed reorganisation may be made to the Church Commissioners.'

    =====================================================


In accordance with legislation effective from September 23rd, we have prepared and are displaying the NHS Contact Track and Trace QR code posters in our Hall and Narthex. At the moment this is for Hall users only, there is no requirement to use this when attending a service of worship but logging in will certainly help the NHS to follow the situation.


For those who are unfamiliar with this, please use your favourite search engine for NHS Covid-19 App and the details are all there. The website says:


The new NHS COVID-19 app, now available to download for free in England and Wales, is the fastest way to see if you're at risk from coronavirus. The faster you know, the quicker you can alert and protect your loved ones and community. The app has a number of tools to protect you, including contact tracing, local area alerts and venue check-in. It uses proven technology from Apple and Google, designed to protect every user’s privacy.


All you need to do is download the app to your smartphone, give a few details and the app will start working. On arrival at SMAAA, or any other venue, simply scan the QR code at the entrance and that’s all there is to it. Protect your loved ones. Download the app.



From August 8th it will be mandatory to wear a face covering in church. See the article from the Church Times on our COVID-19 UPDATE page, go to HOME above.
