We are on the brink of something very exciting! Something that hasn’t happened since mid March.
While you have been watching season four of “The Crown,” the team at St Michael’s has been busily preparing for re-opening the church building for in-person services. Online services will continue. We know that some will not be able to return to ‘in person” church because of health or distance.
So, we await the Premier’s announcement on Sunday. In the meantime, it is still “online as usual” this Sunday at 10am.
Early next week, we will email information about ‘booking’ to attend church. Numbers will be restricted. We will be rather oddly spread out. And we can’t have morning tea. However, we will be able to chat afterwards in St Michael’s Walk (in a physically distanced, masked way) and I know that many are really looking forward to that.
This year we have become practised in patience and solidarity in the face of challenges. I’m confident we will keep the caring momentum going; being kind, gentle and fair with others and with ourselves.
Peace and blessings Margaret
