We're delighted to let you know that Gillaine has received confirmation from Bishop Andrew that the BMO at St Michael's will be extended for a further 5 years after 31 May 2021, enabling mission and ministry to continue on Sheerwater.
Thank you so much to all our friends in the Deanery and Circuit and further afield who have prayed, supported and cheered from the sidelines throughout this difficult season. We're deeply grateful for your generosity (currently well over £300k). The finance team will be in touch with those churches and individuals who made pledges that were conditional on this renewal! We have launched a 'friends of St Michael's' for individual supporters who should now have been contacted with a newsletter. Do contact Tracey in the office if it's helpful to have an e-copy along with the invitation to become a friend. We always have room for more friends!
We look forward to many more years of partnering with you as we continue Feeding Faith & Growing Community in this area.
Every blessing and a happy and safe Christmas to you and your communities.
from Gillaine and the people of St Michael's
