Living to make a difference
Sunday servicesAt St Michael’s we hold three main church services every Sunday, and quite a few others besides. Each service has a slightly different style and feel, enabling as many people as possible to find a helpful way to worship together. More...) groups and activities, and the adults stay in the auditorium for more worship, teaching and prayer together. (More...) More...) More...)
Messy church does what it says on the tin. This is church for people who find sitting still and being quiet impossible. It’s fun, there’s noise, we make stuff, there’s food and there’s lots of mess.
Messy church is held on the first Wednesday of each month at 4pm in the Old School Rooms.
Crafts, painting, games, making, cutting, sticking, singing, stories, a meal, lots of mess.
Messy church is for families.
There’s no charge for messy church, but donations to cover the cost of food and craft materials are always welcome.
Kainos is a monthly youth gathering for the North Bristol area. Dozens of young people and their youth leaders come together for an evening of relaxation, creativity and celebration.
The word kainos is Greek for ‘new’ or ‘fresh’. Kainos youth celebration is a fresh and yet authentic way of worshipping God for a younger generation.
It all takes place in the Old School Rooms.
The café opens at 6pm and provides a place for people to hang out and connect with other Christians from the area. It's also a safe place for people to bring their friends.
The celebration starts at 7pm. There's band-led worship, space for creative prayer and art, relevant biblical talks and opportunity to receive prayer.
In addition to the celebration, we provide and promote mission opportunities across the area so that we can put our faith into practice.
Kainos is made up of young people from various churches in the North Bristol area.
There’s loads more info on the Kainos website.
Weddings & BaptismsOne of the joys of life at St Michael’s is in making people welcome at times of family celebration.
WeddingsSt Michael's Church makes a stunning wedding venue. It has done for centuries. And this year we are holding our first marriage ceremony in the auditorium of the St Michael's Centre. The church office will be glad to discuss all the options for your big day. Do get in touch to talk it through. In the meantime you can also look at this dedicated Church of England website for more information on having a Church wedding. If you are looking to have your Banns of Marriage called please contact the church office.
BaptismsDozens of people are baptised (or "Christened") at St Michael's every year, either as infants or when they are old enough to choose to be baptised for themselves. Some people book the church for their own family baptism service; others choose to be baptised during one of a regular weekly services. We have even had families baptised during our monthly Messy Church services on a Wednesday afternoon. For more information about Baptisms within the Church of England, take a look at this website. If you would like to talk about being baptised, or having your child baptised, please contact the church office to discuss any of these possibilities.
On the sad occasion of the death of a friend or family member, support, prayer and help with planning a funeral at St Michael’s can make a real difference.
Our leadership team is experienced at caring for the bereaved, and always willing to work with individuals and families to prepare for a funeral, cremation, burial or memorial service that is sensitive and fitting.
