Vicar on study leave

As many of you will know, I am taking some Study Leave – to travel to the Middle East and visit Christian communities there. And also to have some rest after ten years of ordained ministry.

I am both excited at this prospect but also I know that I shall miss St Michael's and the parish very much.

I’ll be away from Wednesday 15 May to Tuesday 27 August inclusive.

Here are the people to contact in my absence:

Sunday worship - Revd Gary Piper, Associate Priest; Sue White, Churchwarden; Linda Woods, Deputy Churchwarden; and Sue Riley, Administrator

Wednesday meditation - Kathleen Birch

Midweek services and small groups - Sue Riley, Administrator

Alphabeats - Sue White, Churchwarden

Youth Club - Revd Gary Piper, Associate Priest

Coffee Alpha from 3 October - Sue White, Churchwarden

Retreat at Wychcroft 1-3 November - Alison Newbold

Baptisms, Weddings (including Banns) and Funerals - Revd Gary Piper, Associate Priest; Linda Woods, Deputy Churchwarden

Any other questions - Sue Riley, Administrator; Sue White, Churchwarden
