Details below are about the regular services we have at St Michael's. For special occasions and one off Services please see the calendar on the homepage or the
We would love you to come and join us at one of our services, but you may be unsure what to expect. Here are a few questions that we are sometimes asked about our services.
What's the best service to come to?
If you want something a bit quieter, the 8am will do the trick which is a said communion service (no music). The 8am Service meet on the 1st and 3rd Sundays.
If you are coming with children, then this will be the service for you. The 10.15 am service is our 'main’ service and has a mixture of hymns and more modern songs.
It lasts for 60-75 minutes during which we have separate children’s activities for those aged from 0-13 years. It is a service for all ages. 1st and 3rd Sundays are our Morning Worship, Services with 2nd and 4th Sundays we join in Holy Communion. 5th Sundays are All Age Holy Communion.
Running on the third Wednesday of each month at 11:00am in Church. A said service of Holy Communion (no music) followed by a simple lunch served in the Church Room.
What should I wear?
Whatever you’re comfortable in. People wear anything from jeans and t-shirts to jacket and tie.
Will I know what to do in the Service?
For the 10:15am service all the words you need will be on a large screen, at the front of the church. There is also a service sheet giving details of the service - large print versions are also available, so just ask if you'd like one. There are Bibles available so you can follow the readings.
The 8:00am communion service is printed out in a booklet.
When do the children go out to their groups?
This can vary a little depending on the service but it will be announced by the service leader. Your children can either go on their own or with the others, or you’re welcome to take them to the groups, and stay for a minute while they settle in. We have a crèche in a neighbouring room for pre-schoolers. You can leave your child there or stay with them. Towards the end of the service the children come and rejoin us. Children's groups are only available at the 10:15 Service.
What time should I arrive?
Aim to arrive at least five minutes before the service for the 8:00am and 10:15.
Don’t worry if you are a little late though - lots of others are!
Do you have Toilets?
Yes – the main Toilets are straight across from the main entrance inlcuding Disabled facilities and Baby change. There is also another Toilet located through the Cullerne room at the end of the building, head through the Chancel to reach the Cullerne room.
What happens at the end of the Service?
At the end of the service the leader usually says a brief closing prayer. Coffee and tea are served at the front of the church, and you are welcome to stay on for a as long as you wish!
