On the left, you can find details of what is happening this month. Easter is fast approaching, and we will have a service in Church every day during Holy Week (which starts on Palm Sunday, this year that is 13th April). You would be most welcome on Easter Sunday, of course (20th April at 0930). The following week (27th) our service times change, and from then on our main Sunday Service will be at 0915. After the service on 27th we will be holding our Annual Parish Meeting - at which we will be electing the Churchwardens, and making plans for the coming year. Our busy April comes to an end with our Spring Fair on Sunday 7th May!
In Church, and in our own personal reading this year we are "Dwelling in John". Each week we shall be looking closely at a different element of John's Gospel, and supporting this with pictures, poems and other readings. You can follow us every week by following the following this link
St. Michael and All Angels, Altcar is the parish church that serves the communities of Great Altcar, LIttle Atlcar, Altcar Range and Gore Houses. If you want to know if you live in our parish, then go to www.achurchnearyou.com, and type in your postcode.
Many of our regular congregation live elsewhere, and newcomers are always welcome. If you think that transport might be a problem for you, then contact David ([email protected]) and we can see if we can help.
Our main Sunday service is a parish communion at 9:30 am (from the end of April 9:15 am), you can be sure of a warm welcome, and a friendly congregation, and small children are always welcome.
At 4pm on the fourth Sunday of every month we welcome families with small children, who may find the business of getting to church first thing on a Sunday morning a little stressful!
If you are thinking of finding out more about us you can email David Taylor (the assistant priest) on [email protected] . We also publish details of our services here, on the Parish noticeboard in Little Altcar, and on the noticeboard in Church. Altcarstm also has a presence on Flickr.com

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.
