Our church remains open today (Saturday 10 September) and our King and country prayed for at our service tomorrow morning at 9.30 (Sunday 11 September). The King will be proclaimed in London today and then around the country tomorrow and for local parishes this will be at 4 o’clock and in our case on the steps outside St Michael’s with the church bells being rung straight away afterwards, and with a ceremony for Cross Roads following at 5 o’clock by the Memorial Pavilion in Cross Roads Park. In due course a special service will be held close to (but not on the day of) the late Queen’s funeral.
