One of two churches in Stockwell Parish, St Michael's is a fun, vibrant, friendly church. The congregation is a mixture of long established members and new families. Ethnically we are mixed, with a good range of people from white, African and Afro-Caribbean backgrounds. Socio-economic backgrounds are very varied too. Most people in the congregation volunteer to do things either in the service or behind the scenes. The service is low to medium in style, with singing backed by an organ. The clergy robe, but the style is not too formal.
The lead charitable activity for the church is the Robes Project which helps homeless people. We partner with a number of other local churches to provide one night's accomodation a week for up to 20 homeless people in the church hall during winter months. Members of the congregation and other local people volunteer to cook for them and sleep over with them to ensure things run smoothly.
