St Michael and All Angels The Parish Church of South Yardley Birmingham B26 1AP


Welcome to St Michael's website



+++++STOP PRESS+++++

Our website needs to move to a different hosting platform which will involve a lot of amendments and alterations to the existing pages.

Please bear with us for a while until we can get the new version up and running!



The Second Sunday after Trinity


Said Eucharist

Sunday June 13th - 10.00am in Church only.


Live streaming of Sunday Mass

As we haven’t had anyone joining the live stream of Sunday Mass for the last couple of weeks the PCC has taken the decision to suspend live streaming. We will continue to live stream mid-week festivals as and when they occur and will resume Sunday live streaming should the need arise. If you have any questions or comments please don’t hesitate to speak to Father Alex.

There won’t be a service of Compline for the next two Wednesdays but it will resume on Wednesday 16th June at 9.30pm through the following Zoom link

Visiting clergy

We are looking forward to welcoming the Reverend Hugh Houghton as he presides on Sunday 13th June.


Swan Group service - 11th July

More details will provided in due course, but there will be an outdoor Songs of Praise at Saint Cyprian’s church for ourselves, Saint Cyprian’s and Saint Mary’s on the 11th July at 4pm.

Watch this space for more news!


Cream Tea - Saturday 28th August

There is a plan to hold a social event with Saint Cyprian’s church in the Vicarage garden on Saturday 28th August between 2pm and 5pm. More details will be provided in due course but please save the date. It will be an open invitation to include anyone else who you may want to bring along with you.

Change to Sunday’s service time from 1st July

To prepare for the return of music as part of our worship (and the additional time this adds to the length of a service) the PCC have decided to move the start time of Sunday’s Mass to 9.30am. This will take effect from the 1st July. If you have any questions, concerns or comments please speak to Father Alex or any member of the PCC.


Christian Aid

Many thanks for all the donations that have been returned for Christian Aid. The Reverend Sylvia Roberts is busy processing our donations and will provide a collection total in due course.


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 hold our work to reintroduce music into our worship in your prayers.

.

Prayers for Saint Cyprian’s

Please pray for the wisdom and insight as we work out how best to reopen the Memorial Hall to the community of Hay Mill.


With prayers and best wishes,


Alex

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.
