St Michael, Heckfield
Our church building is closed during the week but will be open for services as part of the pattern of rotation around our parish churches as we gather for a short spoken service of Holy communion. Mattingley and Rotherwick churches are additionally open for limited times each week for personal prayer. We are very mindful of the need to ensure safe practice in order to protect all those who wish to come inside as guidelines permit. Please bear with us as our ministry team and volunteers work out the safest way to make our buildings a place of welcome for rest and prayer.
Be joyful in hope,
patient in affliction,
faithful in prayer. Romans 12: 12
