Revd Canon Simon Jones

Congratulations to Simon who has been installed as Honorary Canon at Bristol Cathedral.

This honour is a recognition of Si’s work as Rector and Area Dean, as well as leader of the Heart of the Community Project.

Si was installed alongside 5 others from across the Diocese, and all were well supported within the congregation.

Si said  “A huge ‘thank you’ to everyone at St Michael’s who came to the Cathedral on Sunday. I felt very loved and supported by you all. It was a privilege to be installed as a Canon at Bristol Cathedral and an on-going joy to lead St Michael’s.”

Stand-up Poetry with Harry Baker and Chris Read

Forget everything you thought you knew about poetry. Banish the word ‘recital” from your mind. Instead, think stand-up comedy, improvised lyrics, inspiring storytelling, rap, rhythm, song, and laughter. Lots of laughter.

We’re hosting a world class stand-up poetry event in the St Michael’s Centre on Friday 26 May.

Harry Baker is an international poetry slam champion. Chris Read is his musical partner in crime. Their energetic blend of lyrics and laughs is hopeful, challenging and charming.

Christmas is coming….

We’ve had a busy week here at St Michael’s, and it’s been fantastic to see so many people come along to lots of different expressions of church.

We’ve had Messy Church,  Cheswick Carol Concert, Saturday Breakfast, Children’s Nativity and the Over 65’s Lunch to name just a few!

We also had a very wet Carols on the Green!  Well done to everyone who braved the rain and came along!

Carols on the Green

A big thank you to everyone who helped make this,and all other events this past week, happen.

If you didn’t manage to come along – or even if you did – don’t worry, there is more happening in the next two weeks, and we look forward to welcoming you!
