Our Building

St Michael's is open every day of the year from 9am to dusk, and visitors are welcome to leave a prayer request in the Lady Chapel, where prayer materials are available. Members of the church community will pray for requests made. We are sorry but we cannot provide facilities for the lighting of candles during the day due to the fire risk.
