Church of England Diocese of York Cherry Burton

About Us

St. Michael's is an outward looking and friendly parish church that welcomes people of any age or background. Situated at the Eastern side of the village of Cherry Burton the church focuses on the life of the village with the vision and mission to “Know God, Show God and Share God” with the village and the world.

The regular worshipping congregation at St. Michael's is diverse with people coming from a variety of church backgrounds, or with no previous experience of Church at all.

There is a mix of worship on Sundays with both informal and traditional services.

The building is a blend of the old and the new. The main building was constructed in 1853 as a replacement for a much earlier one. It seats around 130 people and has retained the original choir stalls, pulpit and many of the pews. There has been some appropriate reordering in the past to create a more spacious and open area at the front of the nave as well as a small family area at the west end.

The church is also fortunate to have a beautiful two manual organ which is used for many of our services on a Sunday as well as being available for weddings, baptisms and funerals. Accessible through the west end of the nave, but also having its own separate entrance, is the St. Michael's Centre, a large modern church hall, with good kitchen facilities and the capability of being divided into three sound-insulated areas. Toilet and baby changing facilities are available.
