Easter services, events and celebrations

Easter is the biggest celebration in the church calendar

At St Michael’s we welcome everyone to a variety of services, events and celebrations over the Easter weekend.

There are fun, noisy activities for young families, traditional church services, times of quiet contemplation and packed-out gatherings for uplifting worship together. This year we are also hosting a live performance by the acclaimed touring theatre company, Riding Lights.

Everyone is invited to come along for as much or as little of the celebrations as they like. Bring your friends, relatives and neighbours for a chance to celebrate the greatest news in history, right in the heart of our community.
