We write because we have come to a turning point with the parish magazine representing the two parishes of St Michael’s and St Chad’s. We are having difficulty gaining enough interest in and support of the three main roles which are critical to the success of producing a magazine.
The three separate roles are as follows:
- an editorial team - commissioning articles and collating information and parish news ready for printing
- someone to communicate and work with all who advertise in the magazine, to keep this up to date each year, and to collect income generated from the adverts
- a team to help with printing the magazine ‘in house’.
If you feel that a joint magazine should continue in some shape or form and would be interested in taking up one of these roles please could you get in touch and let us know as soon as possible over the summer?
We intend to produce an interim magazine to cover the summer period with a view to starting a joint magazine in September if we can gain sufficient interest in all three roles. If we cannot establish interest in all of the three roles listed above, however, there will be no magazine in September of this year.
Thank you for reading this letter and giving this matter your consideration.
All good wishes

Welcome to St. Michael and All Angels.
Saint Michael and All Angels' Church is a an open and inclusive Church in the Liberal Catholic tradition of Church of England. Here you will find a parish church which, in various forms, has stood at the heart of the community of Headingley since 1620.
Here you will find wonderful Gothic architecture, fine stained glass, beautiful wrought iron work, a fine organ accompanying harmonious singing, all witnessing to the beauty and welcome of God, and the care and faithfulness of generations of Christians.
Above all, it is here you will find a Christian Community worshipping God, praying that we may grow in love and service, and in the beauty of holiness.
We invite all who enter to pause and make space for the God who made us and who meets us in Jesus Christ.
On behalf of the whole worshipping community, may we welcome you to St Michael’s. We pray that God will bless your visit here.
Revd. Tony Whatmough
Vicar of St. Michael’s Church. Team Rector of the Headingley Team
