Sundays in Advent 09:30am Every Sunday morning—to help us all prepare.
Sunday 18th December 4:00pm
Our Family Carol Service. Very informal, great fun and Christmassy refreshments afterwards. Over the past few years the church has been full, and everyone gets chance to sing some favourite carols. Everyone is welcome!
Christmas Eve 11:30 pm The Midnight Service
A candlelit communion service. It lasts about an hour, and is the very best way to say thank you and prepare for what is to come!
Christmas Day 9:30 am Family Communion Service
For those with stamina from the night before, and those with smaller children! The service lasts under the hour, because the preacher is cooking the turkey! Feel free to bring your favourite new toy, socks or jumper...
You would be most welcome at any or all of our services, but whether you join us or not the churchwardens, congregation and clergy hope that you have a happy, peaceful and blessed Christmas.

Some people will be able to find the time to come to St. Michael's for a place and time to think and maybe pray. We can't all manage that, for many different reasons. Prayer works everywhere, and at the most unpromising times. If you feel that you want to pray, but can't quite find the words, then you may find some help on this link.
