From Fr.Alex

Christian Aid

Christian Aid week begins on 10th May and this year is focused on the impact of climate chaos particularly on developing communities. Given the on going pandemic we are somewhat limited for fundraising ideas. However our service on the 16th May will be focused on Christian Aid and will include a collection for their work. If you are able to contribute towards our collection, please take an envelope this week from the Narthex and return it next Sunday at our Christian Aid service.


There are some interesting resources and challenges for this year on the Christian Aid website which I can recommend that you have a look at. It can be found through the following link https://www.christianaid.org.uk/appeals/key-appeals/christian-aid-week


Used postage stamps

Please bring in any used postage stamps for our collection in the Narthex. They will be used to support the work of the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB).

 

Prayers for Saint Michael and All Angels

Please pray for our PCC meeting on the 11th May, for heavenly wisdom and insight as we grapple with our development planning, our response to the Living In Love and Faith materials and think through the appointment of an Organist.

 

Prayers for Saint Cyprian’s

Please continue to pray that our outreach to the gentlemen at the traffic lights gains traction and that we don’t miss any opportunities to live a witness of love


With prayers and best wishes,


Alex

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE

Please see HOME then COVID-19 UPDATES above.


Our updated Risk Assessments and Sidespersons' Duties are now on view, see HOME above or click the button below: 


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.


It is now 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.
