In the heart of heighington and open to all

You are certain of a warm welcome at St Michael’s. Come

along to one of our services and worship God in a friendly and

inviting atmosphere. We have both Church of England and

Methodist members. The parish also has a second small

church, St Andrew’s, at Bolam. We are proud of our strong links

with Heighington CE Primary School.

If you come to a service at 9.30am on a Sunday or at 10am on a Thursday, please join us for tea or coffee and biscuits afterwards, with a pleasant chat, and also purchase items from the Traidcraft stall or bookshelf.
The recently refurbished church tower was originally a watch-tower and signal station but now provides a reference point, representing peace of a different sort. People have worshipped here for centuries St Michael’s has stood since Norman times and today Christians are working out what it means to be followers of Jesus Christ in our own times too. Our church is the centre of the village, and as a congregation we seek to be identified with the community of which we are a part.

Most of us have rather mixed feelings about Christmas this year. We are worried about missing the usual things we treasure so much meeting up with loved ones, cherished traditions, familiar events. And, of course, at church we are very conscious that things are not going to be the same this year. We don’t yet know what exactly the restrictions are going to be by the end of the month and everyone’s circumstances will be different anyway. Some of you may be able to be with family, some of you may be able to go away, and some of you will be attending services. For others there will be a greater degree of isolation and things will be far harder. But for all of us things will have to be different. However, I do think it’s important that we still try to make Christmas special. Christmas itself is not cancelled, because its real meaning is unchanging, and so it’s up to us to try to create memories that will be both good and lasting. Here are a few suggestions for spreading ‘Comfort and Joy’.
As well as an Advent Calendar, have an Advent Candle and put it in the window to share its light with others. If you cannot sing carols in church or school or wherever you normally would, then set aside a time to sing them at home. If you cannot come to a Christingle service, then make and light your own at home, and support all that the Children’s Society do for children and young people in need. Make Christmas decorations together with your children and grandchildren even if you have to do it online over Skype, or Zoom or Facetime or WhatsApp. Include a crib as a central part of your Christmas decorations. Set time aside on Christmas Eve, especially if you cannot come to church to start your family Christmas at church in the usual way, and read the real Christmas story, sing some carols and say a prayer together. If you cannot get to midnight mass, then as well as leaving out the sherry, mince pie, and carrot for Santa and Rudolph, also put the baby Jesus into the crib at midnight in your crib scene at home. Keep up the full 12 days of Christmas, and leave those decorations up until Twelfth Night. Every Tuesday in December and on Twelfth Night (Jan 5th) come out on to your doorstep at 7.00 and sing a couple of carols. I hope you have a blessed and joyful Christmas.
