In 1942 the process of funding and building a church in Tollerton was begun by villagers and in September 1955 St. Michael’s was dedicated by the Bishop of Selby. The Church has since been extended twice and served generations of local people for more than 60 years.Services: Services are mostly held on Sunday morning at 10.30 a.m and once a month we have an afternoon family gathering with food, games and an open discussion about Christian faith. St. Michael’s provides holy communion twice a month and one Sunday each month is an ‘all age’ Family Service. (The services do tend to jump about a bit, so please do check the latest Parish Newsletter for service details.)
We join with Aldwark & Alne churches to provide services at special times of the year such as Christmas, Easter & Mothering Sunday and all members of the community are really welcome to join us at these special times. In fact we welcome anyone who wants to join us at any of our services, whether on a regular or an ad hoc basis, and you will be equally welcome if you arrive late or just fancy having a coffee and a chat with us some time to find out more. For those who do join us more often, our regular worshippers come from Tollerton, Easingwold and other surrounding villages and they are attracted by our modern worship, informal style and friendly welcome.
St Michael's runs children's groups (known as 'GodZone') alongside the morning service twice each month, for children aged 3 - 13 years and all children and babies are welcome at all of our services. Our youth (ages 14 and up) meet Wednesdays in Raskelf with our local youth leaders and USA youth workers. A Men’s Fellowship group meets in at he Galtres Centre in Easingwold on the 4th Saturday of each month at 8.00 am along with the Men from some of the other Easingwold churches for a breakfast and prayer time.
We have meeting room facilities which host Mum & toddler groups, art groups and local parish council meetings, amongst other things. Please get in touch if you would like to view the rooms for potential use, facilities include kitchen, toilet & baby changing, garden space and wifi.
We join with other local churches and organisations to publish the monthly parish newsletter which advertises church and local community events and activities.
