Charity of the Season - The Children’s Society

Right now in Britain there are children and young people who feel scared, unloved and unable to cope. The Children’s Society works with these young people, step by step, for as long as it takes.

We listen. We support. We act.

There are no simple answers so we work with others to tackle complex problems. Only together can we make a difference to the lives of children now and in the future.

Because no child should feel alone.


There will be a

Confirmation Service

at St. Michael’s on 1st March 2020. If anyone wants to know more, please see Tony or

“Looking into the spirit of others is sometimes like looking into a pond. Though we aim to see what's deep in the bottom, we are often

distracted by our own reflection.”
