A Prayer about the outbreak

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Amen.

The parishioners of St Michael’s are an active and friendly group of Christians who enjoy the fellowship of worshipping together in the Anglican tradition and helping each other to find and grow our faith. We also help and support each other in our daily needs and reach out to others in the wider community.

Mere is a large village of about 2,600 in Wiltshire, England, set in the southwestern tip of Salisbury Plain, close to the borders of Dorset and Somerset. Parts of our church building date from the 11th century, and it attracts many visitors because of its interesting architectural and historical features.

The website tells the St Michael’s story in four main sections:

What’s on
We have regular services on Sunday and also during the week. We also hold other occasional services that appeal to special interests and tastes. You can also find out about our music, our activities for children and young people and other adult groups.       

Groups and community
St Michael’s runs many church-related activities in the main building and also in the Grove Building across the street. Other groups use it for their meetings, concerts, exhibits and comings-together. Here is what they do, with links and contacts to help you find out more.

Building and History                                                                        Like all old buildings, our ancient church shows the history of Mere’s Christian community in stone, hewn and carved wood, stained glass and brass. Find out why so many church guide books single it out for listing.

 Who’s who
St Michael’s has a priest-in-charge, the Revd Carol Green, who was licensed in September 2012.  Churchwardens, a Parochial Church Council (PCC) and other lay people help her in her task.  See who is in charge of the parish and how to contact them.
