St Michael’s, Stoke Gifford is a lively, growing Anglican church on the northern edge of Bristol. We are a welcoming crowd of everyday people, living to make a difference by being a Christian heart at the centre of our communities. Everyone is welcome at St Michael’s.
We live to make a difference by Learning and Growing in our faith. We do this together. All of the ministries below are a reflection of the desire to learn and grow together. It’s the definition of Discipleship, and it’s central to our work through our small groups and courses, and in our commitment to prayer, care and sharing the resources we’ve been given.
We are called to share our faith in Jesus. The Church exists to spread the good news of Jesus’ love & life. We are committed to achieving this locally. We also make a difference well beyond our parish boundaries. We support and work with teams that fight poverty and spread the good news of Jesus locally, nationally and around the world.
Jesus came not to be served, but to serve. Our attitude should be the same. Serving our communities is the heartbeat of life at St Michael’s. Our coffee shop, our meeting rooms and our professional pre-school and nursery are used by hundreds of local families, businesses, groups and individuals all year round. And the generosity of all those who volunteer is constantly bringing reality to our vision of living to make a difference by being a Christian heart at the centre of our communities.
We’re looking for an energetic and dynamic leader to join us in our mission to be a Christian heart at the centre of the community, to work alongside the incumbent in driving forward new initiatives in Discipleship, Outreach and Serving the community.
This is a new and exciting leadership position that has arisen as a result of church growth.

From Thursday 10 – Sunday 20 May, we will be responding to the Archbishop of Canterbury’s invitation to join in the global wave of prayer, petitioning God and saying: ‘Thy Kingdom Come’.

You can book a slot between 6am-10pm each day by signing up online (please note, not all days are visible on the first page – please click the arrow!) or on the Sign-up sheet in the Foyer of St Michael’s Centre.
It’s exciting to think that we can do what the disciples did, as they prayed in the Upper Room after Jesus ascended into heaven and waited for the Spirit to come at Pentecost.
Joining with Christians across the world as we pray together here and now ‘Thy Kingdom come’.

We are seeking an experienced and talented Director to lead our Operations Team and work closely with the Senior Leadership Team to enable us to advance our vision. Lets make this much longer so hopefully it will get truncated after the first 55 word, but I’m not sure so lest see how it goes.
What happens if I add more words, does that get cut off or are all the test posts just short – Chris
Chris – I’ve remembered what I did it was to help me check for the truncation on the home page works which was 55 words and I have reduced to 20 in the coding. Here on the news page summary it doesn’t limit it at the moment but probably needs to although a higher number than 55 words. Then have a read more… to click on.
If you add a news article here and add the category ‘front page’ it will appear in the homepage. You can change the order in the post list filtered on category ‘front page’
