Clergy: Neil Bryson
Reader: Elizabeth Bryson, Eleanor Relle
Schools: St Michael’s CE School Federation (Infant), St Michael’s CE Junior School

Following an increase in attendance since 2016, five new believers were confirmed by the Bishop of Richborough at our Patronal Festival Mass. Please pray for them, and for all the work we are doing in the Deanery, ecumenically, and in the community:
• Elizabeth Bryson is the first Anna Chaplain commissioned in the diocese, supporting and delivering ministry to the elderly.
• Schools links are being strengthened and developed, potentially reaching whole fami-lies.
• Music is a means of service and nurture.
• Meeting Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, we want to grow spiritually and see others ex-perience a life-changing encounter with Him.

Missional Learning Communities (MLCs)

The Missional Learning Community journey is one of corporate spiritual discernment and is rooted in Six Spiritual Practices which hold participants, as teams in communities, prayerfully before the God of mission.
Please pray with and for the first four MLC teams from the Len Valley, Maidstone St Philip’s, Kingsdown and Creekside and The Trinity Benefice, Folkestone.
God of Mission, direct our hearts and minds, energise us in new ways for renewal and growth. Encourage us as we journey in hope and joy in response to your love and direction, now and always. Amen.
