St Michael's Church - worshipping heart of the village


The Church is now open at specific times for private prayer and public worship. The church is open for private prayer on Sundays from 10am - 3pm (when there is no public worship service). Please note that from 8th August the wearing of face coverings is now required in places of worship by the Government. 

We will hold our next public worship services, to include communion, at 10am on the following Sundays: 13th September & 27th September (Harvest/St Michael).  As these services include communion, if you have a small bottle of sanitiser and you wish to receive communion, it would be very helpful if you could bring your sanitiser with you to church. 

in October our worship will be at 10am on Sunday 11th October and 25th October. Our Annual Meeting  will take place after the service on 25th October.
