We have made some changes to the website, and added new content. We hope you will like the result, and we look forward to welcoming visitors. Tell your friends to follow us, and add us to your favourite places. We will endeavour to keep pace with what our Rector and the congregation are up to! So do come and look in on us often.
If you think we could improve the presentation or content of any aspect of the site then do let us know here, and of course if you find something which doesn’t work then let us know straight away, and we will fix it!

The Kilombero Rice from sustainable farms in Malawi with Bean Stew, and Refried Beans went down a storm, sometimes our home felt a bit like a fast food outlet, but everyone seemed to have a good time. The Bottom Line? . . . St Michaels raised over £600 for the appeal on behalf of this Rotary Club initiative.

St Michael & All Angels Annual General Meeting
Sunday 8th December 2019
Upper Hall after the 1030 morning service
On Sunday 29th September we celebrated the Feast of St Michael & All Angels – our Patronal Festival. At the Sung Eucharist, our guest preacher was Canon Michael Webb from the Carlisle Diocese.
His theme was Angels as God’s messengers. Perhaps today they do not appear as shining winged creatures to us, but they are with us as our family, friends, mentors, and others who help us through example, counsel, or comment to better see how to carry out God’s needs and wishes here in the world. We should listen to others, they may perhaps unwittingly be Gods Messengers like St Michael. The congregation shared a St Michael’s day cake as we did last year. The inscription reads ‘St Michael protect us’.
