An update from Fr.Alex French:


Dear Friends,

As we step into another (and in all likelihood the last) lockdown it is more important than ever that we maintain our connection with our Lord and Saviour and also with each other. In order to help enable these connections, as a church we will be offering a slightly different set of weekly opportunities. At the moment (if national guidance changes we will review these) we will be running:

1. St. Michael and All Angels will remain open for Mass at 10am on a Sunday and Tuesday. We have reviewed our Risk Assessment which means that we are as confident as we can be that the church building is Covid secure.

2. The Mass each Sunday will be recorded and uploaded onto our church YouTube channel and also our website. An email with the appropriate link will be sent out each time a Mass is uploaded so that it can be watched at home or anywhere else where you have an internet connection.

3. The sermon, Mass sheet and notices will be emailed before each Sunday service. This offers the opportunity to prayerfully reflect on the readings and sermon at a time of your choosing.

4. A service of Compline will take place via Zoom every Wednesday evening at 9.30pm. Links for the service will be included in the Mass sheet for the Sunday before it occurs and on here.

5. Once a fortnight on a Friday afternoon between 2pm and 3pm there will be an opportunity to meet on Zoom for a coffee and a natter. This will start on Friday 15th January. Zoom links will be on this Sunday's Mass sheet and on here. If you would like to be included on the email distribution list for all the above notifications etc, please use the 'CONTACT US' form to send your email address to us.

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE

The Bishop of Birmingham, Rt.Rev David Urquart, has commented on the recent Government announcements. Please see HOME then COVID-19 UPDATES above.


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


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.

All are welcome to join us here at St.Michael's in our worship and in our various activities. Our worship follows a high Anglican format and we are proud of our strong musical roots.

We are a church with a big heart that worships in a big building, that heart is to see God's kingdom

break through into the lives of our families, friends and neighbours.

‘Let no one be a stranger in our midst!’
