Morning Prayer is part of the 'Daily Offices' - a set liturgy of readings, psalms, canticles and prayers. It'a great way to set you up for the day. We also include a reflection too for one of the readings from some modern theologians, priests and Bishops from around the UK. Please use the link to access the liturgy and readings which are different each day. Also Email Rev'd Jackie for the code to enter the Zoom Service. You will be made very welcome

In response to the Coronavirus pandemic and the death of our dear friend and choir member at St Michael's, a group of volunteers came together. His family’s wish is that acts of kindness are carried out in his memory.
The group has four main aims:
• To support the Middleton community who are self-isolating or classed as vulnerable and unable to carry out food shopping.
• To collect medical prescriptions if all other options for delivery have failed.
• To provide food parcels to people who are in financial difficulties and unable to support their families or themselves.
• To support staff and residents of eight Middleton Care Homes by providing cheer up packages, entertainment, and basic PPE equipment (gloves, aprons, hand sanitiser),
