Welcome to the page for St Michael's Church in Thornton.  

Our services are at 10.45 am on the first and third Sundays of the month and everyone is warmly welcome. The first Sunday is Holy Communion and the third Sunday is Morning Prayer. We usually provide activities for young children to do independently. We are very much a relaxed and informal congregation.
