For our prayers:

The Anglican Communion: The Episcopal Church in the Philippines


The Diocese: Please pray for all those who work in military establishments within the Diocese, that they are protected as they carry out their work, and for us to understand that swords will eventually be turned into ploughshares (Isaiah 2v4).


Our Parish: The Headingley Branch of the Royal British Legion.


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.


Charity of the Season:

Motor Neurone Disease



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.


Some Future events

at St. Michael’s

28th July: Choir & Sunday Club trip to Scarborough

29th July: Headingley Team Outdoor Service, St. Michael’s 10am.


Eco-tips: If you’ve got a shower that takes hot water straight from your boiler or hot water tank (rather than an electric shower), fit a water efficient shower head. This will reduce your hot water usage while retaining the sensation of a powerful shower.


We are looking for a Foundation Governor for our church Primary School, Shire Oak. If anyone is interested in this, could they contact the Vicar or Ann Dudzinski?
