We were delighted to welcome Bishop Toby to St Michael’s yesterday. He gave an inspiring and thought-provoking sermon about Mary’s visit by the Angel Gabriel, and encouraged us all to always have kindness in our hearts.

There are plans to build an incinerator in our valley and the Environment Agency is making a decision whether to grant it a license to operate. The consultation closes on Thursday 13 December 2018. St Michael's PCC is opposed to the incinerator and we encourage you to find out more and consider objecting. More details can be found on Facebook on the official Aire Valley Against Incineration page. You can send your objection via the Environment Agency consultation webpage.
