Charity of the Season:Motor Neurone Disease Association

The Motor Neurone Disease Association is the only national charity in England, Wales and Northern Ireland focused on improving access to care, research, campaigning  information and support alongside fighting for improved services.


Thank you to Glynis Dickson and her team who week by week put such beautiful displays in church.

However, the flower fund is running a bit low, so if you would like to contribute, perhaps in memory of someone or to celebrate an anniversary, please give your contributions to Glynis, or put them in the Flower Fund box by the door.


Our recent House to House collection and Charity of the Season, raised £731.04p for Christian Aid. Thank you to everyone who contributed.


If you have spare plastic boxes that could be used for food? Bring them to church.

The Rainbow Junktion – The Real Junk Food Project at All Hallows' Café can always use them.


Leeds North and West Foodbank is urgently in need of donations.  Emergency food parcels for three days are issued to people found to be in food crisis by organisations within the community.   Ninety percent of the food distributed is given by the general public. Please put donations for the Foodbank and Pafras in the boxes at the back of church. No perishable items please.


Some Future events at St. Michael’s

An agreed statement produced by the official commission for dialogue between the Roman Catholic and Anglican churches has been heralded as "ground-breaking" and an "important step on the pilgrimage towards fuller unity in Christ".

The text for the work – "Walking Together on the Way: Learning to be the Church – Local, Regional, Universal " – has been  agreed by the Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission (ARCIC III).  It was the first document produced by ARCIC III and is the culmination of seven years’ work.

The document encourages Anglicans and Roman Catholics to learn from each other’s differences, rather than concentrating on common ground. For example, Anglicans are invited to examine models of unity within the Catholic tradition and Catholics to look at empowering local church leaders and the laity in decision-making.


To say that Christianity  is just one of several religions is a bit like saying that water is just one of many types of drink - it’s a bit more complicated than that!


Please remember in your prayers Emily Jones and Alex Wheatley who are to be married on 21st July, both former student members at St. Michael’s
