You will probably know that the Bishop's Mission Order at St Michael's, Sheerwater ends after 5 years on 31 May 2021 and that a new BMO can only be put in place, with Gillaine as the Leader, if substantial finances are found. We are in negotiations with Woking Borough Council for a brand new community building as part of the Regeneration on Sheerwater. We will be bringing MASCOT (our community charity) under our roof and creating a café area, a workshop and multiple rooms in which we can continue to worship and serve the people of Sheerwater.
One of the fundraising initiatives is this virtual art exhibition from 3 friends of St Michael's who are donating 50% of their sales directly to the church. Buying something beautiful and original from our website not only helps to continue mission and ministry in an area of high deprivation, but also supports artists in lockdown. New artists will be added each month.
Christmas is coming or maybe you just need to brighten your home now you've stared at the same pictures for 6 months! Either way, please take a look, share with your contacts and help us to realise our vision by securing the next phase of the BMO.
With our deepest thanks for your prayers and support.
Rev'd Gillaine Holland
