“To Know Christ and Make Him Known”
At St Michael’s we hope Christians will have the opportunity to deepen their faith and those exploring Christianity will be able to find out more.
Come and join us on Sundays at 10.30am with clear Bible teaching and wonderful music with hymns old and new.
There is a relaxed friendly atmosphere and toys at the back of Church for our younger members of the congregation.
During the Bible readings and sermon, children 0-11 meet in our wonderful Lodge for Sunday School.
Families with children are especially welcome, and also to our monthly Family Church at 3.45pm.

Sundays at 0900am
This is the Traditional book of Communion Prayer Communion Service - said.
Sundays at 10.30am
We worship together with wonderful music, the Bible is read and explained and we bring up all our needs in prayer. There are also special childrens activities during the service.
On three Sundays of the month, the 1st, 3rd and 5th, we have a PARISH COMMUNION Service with Sunday school.
At this service, after the sermon and prayers, we remember and celebrate the death of Jesus Christ on the cross for us all. We thank God for His great saving act of sending His Son to die for us and conquer sin and death.
Everyone is invited to participate in this service: to receive the bread and wine if it is their custom or to come up for a blessing. All children are invited up to receive a blessing.
If anyone with mobility difficulties wishes to have Communion brought to their seat that can be easily arranged. Similarly, we can provide non-alcoholic wine or gluten-free wafers.
There is a Sunday school group for children aged 0-12 years - which meets each Sunday in the Lodge, unless Family Church is on in the afternoon then there is no Sunday School in the morning. The children leave church usually after the second hymn and return about 20 mins later at the Peace. There is a group of experienced Sunday school leaders with the children at all times.
On the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month, we have a MORNING WORSHIP Service. This is an informal service lasting between 45 mins and an hour, suitable for all the family.
The Bible is read and explained in the sermon. There are prayers lead by the clergy and a member of the congregation. We sing a range of hymns modern and traditional.
Sunday school is also held during Morning Worship Services for children age 3- 12. As with Parish Communion Services the children leave church usually after the second hymn and return about 20 mins later.
Monthly we have a Family Church aimed at all the family. It is a short informal interactive service where young children can move around without parents feeling awkward. There is always a variety of activities taking place for children of all ages.
The service normally has a special theme; we have held 'Pancake Church', 'Mothering Sunday Church', 'Lego Church', 'Lift Off Church' and 'Cream Tea Church'. And have in the pipeline 'Superheroes Church' and 'Star Wars Church'.
We also celebrate Palm Sunday with a real donkey and donkey rides.
