Christmas/Advent Appeals

Every year at this time many different voices compete for our attention, but as well as seeking a quiet space for reflection we are also made more aware of the human needs that surround us and the inequalities of our world. At St Michaels, Advent is in particular a time in which we try to respond to those needs in a concrete way.

This Advent we will be collecting gifts for the mums and children at the Mary Smith Night Shelter.

However between now and Sunday 11 December we are collecting toiletries and small gifts for the male and female clients of St Bartholomew's House. There is no need for foodstuffs as these are to be supplied by Foodbank this year. For a list of items required please see the noticeboard in the hall. Gifts may be left around the font.
