St MICHAEL’S CHURCH, SHEERWATER – VIRTUAL ART EXHIBITION
This virtual art exhibition is a fundraising initiatives by 3 friends of St Michael’s who are donating 50% of their sales directly to the church to continue the Bishops Mission Order with a priest for this area of high deprivation. The church is being demolished as part of the Regeneration project, and they are in negotiations with Woking Borough Council for a brand new community building, which will include MASCOT (their community charity), a café area, a workshop & rooms in which they can continue to worship and serve the people of Sheerwater. Your support will not only help St Michael’s church to continue its mission and ministry in this area; it will also support artists in lockdown. https://stmichaelssheerwater.org.uk/virtual-art-exhibition/
As Rev Gillaine Holland said: please take a look, share with your contacts and help us to realise our vision by securing the next phase of the BMO.”
