Join the St Michael’s Electoral Roll

Click here to sign up

At St Michael’s we want to live to make a difference, by being a Christian heart at the centre of our communities.  We would love you to be part of our Church family and join in.  If St Michael’s is your home church we would encourage you to join the electoral roll

The electoral roll is the Church of England’s official register of who worships with us here at St Michael’s. If you are not currently on the roll, and you have worshiped regularly with us over the last six months, we would love to encourage you to sign-up.

Why have an Electoral Roll?

It is your parish church register of electors. It is the list of those qualified to attend and to vote at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting where the elections take place for the Parochial Church Council and the parish’s representatives on the Deanery Synod.  Any person entitled to attend the Annual Church Parochial Meeting may raise any question of parochial or general church interest.

How do I join the Electoral Roll?

You can join the electoral roll online by filling in the form below.
Alternatively, you can complete a paper form and return it to the church office.

How do I know if I am resident in the parish?

You can use a Church Near You to determine whether your home address falls within St Michael’s parish boundaries or not.

I still have questions!

Musical Worship

Worship through music

Together, offering a sacrifice of praise to Jesus and experiencing His transforming power through worship

We really value musical worship at St Michael’s, and we seek to make worship accessible for everyone – whether you engage best through the more traditional music at the 9 o’clock or through the contemporary worship at the ten-thirty and six-thirty.

We are blessed with an amazing team of singers, musicians, sound engineers and audio-visual operators who lead us in our worship. If you play an instrument or sing, or if you have tech skills, and are interested in getting involved, we would love to hear from you!

Please look out for our worship pastor, Rachel Rogers, at church or make contact via the church office. Or you can fill on the Worship Team application form

Upcott is a Christian charity committed to providing an environment where young people can experience the fulness of Jesus in their lives.

Many young people from St Michael’s have attended Upcott Weeks over the years. Some have helped on weeks or done gap years and others are now serving as trustees.

The Trust is in a period of transition. For over fifty years the work was based in a residential environment, the original Upcott in Seaton, Devon between 1968 and 2007 and then The Beacon in Minehead from 2007 to 2019. But with the sale of The Beacon we are moving into a new phase. We will continue to run residential weeks. To that we have added on-line discipleship and study groups, enabling young people to have a vibrant relationship with Jesus that is outworked on a daily basis. We are also developing online resources to further support young people in their relationship with Jesus.

They are meeting the refugees on the border and giving food and accommodation. If they wish to go to Romania then they are transporting them. All this they are doing at their own expense. So we are trying to raise funds for them. If you would like to help please use our donations page and mark your donation Refugees. Thank you“.
