A Prayer for Ukraine
God of peace and justice, we pray for the people of Ukraine today.
We pray for peace and the laying down of weapons.
We pray for all those who fear for tomorrow, that your Spirit of comfort would draw near to them.
We pray for those with power over war or peace, for wisdom, discernment and compassion to guide their decisions.
Above all, we pray for all your precious children, at risk and in fear, that you would hold and protect them.
We pray in the name of Jesus, the Prince of Peace.

A very warm welcome to the Parish of Mickleham, where the two villages of Mickleham and Westhumble are situated in the Surrey Hills, privileged to be in this part of the county designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty.
We belong to the United Benefice of Leatherhead and Mickleham in the Guildford Diocese, within the wider Church of England. Each of our two parishes is about one thousand years old but in 2001 we joined together in an ecclesiastical partnership, sharing resources and opportunities to grow together in our shared ministries and mission.
At the heart of the Mickleham community, in both a geographical and a spiritual sense, is St. Michael's Church, an attractive grade II* listed Norman building which is beautifully preserved, having undergone major renovation works in recent years.
Westhumble is mainly a residential and clustered community, and situated close to the local railway station is the lovely Chapel of Ease which in March 2019 will undergo substantial redevelopment.
The Church and Chapel are made up of friendly, relaxed communities of ordinary people with a heart to serve God and the communities in which we live. To be a fully committed member of the Church and Chapel is to be part of the process of decision-making and responsibility, and part of a system of love, care and accountability, in which the members of the Church partner with one another, as part of the world-wide ‘Body of Christ.’
Our local St. Michael’s C of E (A) Infant School enjoy monthly assemblies and special services in church, and regular assemblies in the school will be led by our new priest. Please click here for the school website.
We also have twice termly services, and regular Boarders’ services, in church as staff and students from Box Hill School join us. Box Hill is an independent coeducational boarding and day school, please click here for the school website.
