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 the community. Everyone is welcome at St Michael’s.
There are dozens of ways to connect at St Michael’s, not just within our weekly worship on Sundays. We explore, learn, share and relax together in all kinds of groups and activities, seven days a week. There are opportunities for everyone to play their part.
We are all learning at St Michael’s. Journeying together. And it’s often as we try new things that we grow fastest. That’s what discipleship is all about, 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.
Outreach plays a vital part in our life as a church. We aim to 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.
Serving the community 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.
A new one-act play by Nigel Forde, followed by conversation with leading scientists
A respected scientist and a christian, Job’s work is wrestling with the unpredictable as wellas predictable structure of the universe. Is God really in control?
When Job’s personal world is shaken to the core, how can he re-assemble the pieces of the puzzle, both professionally and spiritually?
Compared with the centuries long hand-in-hand relationship between religious faith and scientific enquiry, recent debate has, for many people, become mistrustful
and sharply adversarial.
Which side is God on? Or is this the wrong question to ask?
One of any number of good and provocative questions thrown out by Faith in the Questions, a combination of theatre and scientific discussion.
Tickets for all Faith In The Questions events are free.
You can book tickets through the Riding Lights Box Office call 01904 613000 or Online
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.”
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.
