Interregnum update

Now that we are in interregnum the next step is for a working group to prepare a parish profile. There will be some consultation as part of the process in the coming weeks but if you have something that you would like to contribute to the thinking you can always chat to any of the wardens, Jenny, Jaime, Ann or David.


6:30 pm Sunday service

From June and during the interregnum it has been decided by the Wardens and Ministry team to have our 6:30 evening service twice a month. This will help the team who are responsible for leading and preaching at all the services. We will be having a 6:30 service on 2nd & 4th Sunday of every month. On 1st & 3rd Sunday of the month we are all warmly invited to worship and join the congregation at St Michael’s Aughton at 4:00pm.  Sunday 3rd June will be at St Michael’s C of E at 4:00pm. For more information please see Sarah or the Wardens.
