The central act of Christian worship, the Eucharist reminds the local Christian Community of why and for whom it does what it does. We gather to give thanks to God for the beauty and wonder of the life that has been gifted to us; to encounter that same God in word, sacrament and one another; to be inspired and strengthened for our life of service and witness; to provide hospitality for those seeking that same encounter with the Sacred.
On the first Sunday of each month the Parish joins together for a less formal 10.30 celebration of the Eucharist here at St. Michael's. The form of service is simpler with fewer hymns and the form of preaching/teaching is either a more interactive address, a guided discussion on current concerns and Christian responses or illustrative craft activities. There is always provision of suitable activities for our younger members. We regularly welcome the families of the newly baptised during this service, which is followed by refreshments.

Our Bible Study Group meets at Rivendell, Church Lane, Bradley, DN37 0AE on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month. (No meetings during Lent)
We cover a range of topics from Books in the Bible, individual characters in Scripture and the writings of Christian theologians. People are welcomed with a drink at 7.30 pm and after an exchange of news we settle to study finishing at approximately 9.00 pm. Further details may be obtained from Joan Hackfath by phone 01472 87 38 51 or email [email protected]
Rivendell is the last house on the right of Church Lane, at the corner next to St. George’s Church, Bradley.
This celebration is an oasis of quiet and stillness in the middle of an often busy week. The simplicity of form offers a time and place that enables us to recognise the Divine in the words of Scripture, in prayers uttered on our lips and in our hearts, in bread and wine shared. Thus renewed we are enabled to recognise the Divine in the creation, those around us and within ourselves. You will be assured of a kindly welcome, space to be still, reflect and pray.
