We have a wide variety of midweek activities at St Michael’s, offering a range of opportunities for people to grow in Christian faith and fellowship.
Christianity Explored is a relaxed and informal introduction to the Christian faith and the claims of Jesus. The course includes DVD clips, Bible study, discussion, and refreshments. You won’t be asked to sing or pray out loud, and no question is ‘off limits’! Christianity Explored is run at St Michael’s several times a year – please contact us to book your place. Further information can also be found here: www.christianityexplored.org
We now have five house groups at St. Michael’s, which meet to study the Bible, pray together and encourage each other in our faith. Our four house groups meet fortnightly – one on Tuesday evenings, one on Wednesday mornings, one on Wednesday evenings, one on Thursday afternoons and another on Thursday evenings. New members are always welcome. Please contact us if you would like to join a house group or wish to find out more.
‘Little Angels’ Toddler Group
Little Angels is a warm and welcoming group for all children from 0 to 4 years old with their parents/carers. We meet every Tuesday 09:15-11:15am (term times only!). A small entrance fee is charged. Little Angels is very popular and currently running near capacity. If you wish to come along, please give Lynne Bennett (01708 746823) a call to check there is space.
Monthly Prayer Meeting
Our Church prayer meeting takes place from 8 to 9.15pm on the first Wednesday of each month. A typical meeting includes prayers of praise for the past month, followed prayers asking his blessing for coming events at St Michael’s. This meeting also includes a couple of songs, a short talk and refreshments.
Fellowship group meets in the Chadwick Hall on the second Wednesday of each month, from 9:30am to 12 noon, and is led by Shirley Giess (01708 762804). The St Michael’s Fellowship (formerly Women’s Fellowship) was founded in 1992 to promote Christian Fellowship and friendship among the women of the parish. It is now open to everyone. The Fellowship’s motto is “Bring a Friend, Meet a Friend, Make a Friend.” Refreshments are available from 9:30am. Members often use this time to chat before the formal part of the meeting which commences at 10:10am. A typical meeting consists of notices, a ‘Thought for the Day’, followed by a guest speaker.
A meeting for prayer and intercession for the sick is held on the 2nd Monday of each month in a home. A list of names for the use of those who wish to pray for the sick in their own homes is updated bi-monthly and copies are available from Pat Burr. Please contact Pat (01708 725151) if you have any names you would wish to add to the list. A healing service is also held occasionally in church.
