Church Notices  

St Michael & All Angels Beetham has reopened for public worship. Please join us for our Parish Eucharist for Michaelmas, our Patronal Festival, in church on Sunday 27th September at 11am

The Priest-in-Charge, the Churchwardens, and the Parochial Church Council carefully considered the implications of the Government's advice that places of worship could be opened for public worship with effect from 4th July.  Following a thorough risk assessment, the PCC agreed to resume regular weekly public worship at St Michael & All Angels Beetham from Sunday 12th July.  Please note that face coverings are now mandatory at public worship services.  For full details of the PCC recommendations, and worship guidance for your safety, please go to the Coronavirus Resources webpage.  Please note that the church remains closed at all other times for the safety of all who attend and maintain the church

* The online service for Michaelmas has been recorded by The Revd Andrew Norman and members of the Beetham and Arnside congregations, with organ music recorded by our Music Director Geoffrey Field, and two hymns recorded by the Choral Scholars of St Martin-in-the-Fields.  For these links and other details of online worship, prayers and resources please visit our Coronavirus Resources page by clicking here

* A special Michaelmas Choral Evensong video has been recorded by the Revd Andrew and members of the congregation with organ music by Geoffrey Field.  This will be published on YouTube for the Feast Day of St Michael on Tuesday 29th September.  The link will be available here and on our Coronavirus Resources webpage

* A reminder that next Sunday (4th October) is our Harvest Festival and we are collecting tins and dried foods for Manna House (no bedding or toiletries this year please).  Please leave your items in the porch during the week or bring them to the church service and leave them on your seat for collection
