The regular weekly services

 

The weekly pattern at St Michael's has undergone some major changes as agreed by our PCC (Parish Church Council) in November 2017:

There will be at least one regular service in St Michael's everyday except Tuesdays and Saturdays - with rare exceptions. There are of course special events and these are advertised on the Calendar and in the Events section of this website. But there is a set pattern of regular worship which underpins the special moments.

St Michael's Emergency Plan

 In 2010  a lot of measures were put in place in preparation for a potential influenza epidemic. In the event we were not unduly affected but we do now have a plan in place to face a serious public emergency. Please note that the pastoral care for those who are ill or bereaved offered by the clergy and others is extended to ALL members of our parish and not simply for church goers. Here is the outline provision:

Sunday School

 We currently run groups for 2-4 year olds, 5-8, and then 8-10. We are flexible about age and try to fit each child into the best group for them. Babies and toddlers are welcome. All our session leaders and helpers are DBS (was CRB) checked. Our teenagers take a turn serving in the sanctuary at the main 10am Sunday Eucharist once a month and at the special festivals.

Our Church

St Michael’s is an Anglican church, which uses modern catholic worship to welcome all to the Lord’s table. We are a smallish congregation, friendly to all comers, whether aged 9 months or 90 years, and whether ‘old hands’ at worship or new to faith and its celebrations. The building, at the junction of Jack Straw’s Lane and the Marston Road, was 50 years old in 2005: we celebrated our Jubilee in style in September. But those who worship in it come from far and wide: all corners of the globe, all ages, all spiritualities, find a home here.
