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 have 2 Alpha courses starting very soon! One on Wednesday evenings and one on Friday afternoons. Alpha is an 8 week course (plus a taster session and a day together in the middle) during which we have the opportunity to discuss all sorts of issues related to the Christian faith. There’s a topic for each session, but we can discuss anything and everything! If you’re new to faith, or just thinking about it, come and join us on Wednesday 11th January at 7pm or Friday 13th January at 1pm both in St Michael’s Centre. You are welcome just to turn up, but if you can register your interest in advance that would be helpful. You can sign up here for the evening session, or here for the daytime session. Or alternatively call Vicky on 0117 969 2486
The very popular Alpha course continues to thrive here at St Michael’s. Our next course starts next week – again in our lovely new St Michael’s Centre
Are you new to faith, or to church, or are you still exploring? If so Alpha could be for you. Or do you know someone you could invite? Alpha is an 8 week course to discuss life and the christian faith in a non threatening way.

Ever thought about Alpha? It’s a course designed primarily for people who don’t go to church (or who haven’t been to church in a long time) and are interested in the Christian faith. Although everyone is welcome!
It’s informal, relaxed and involves food!
Our next course starts on Wednesday 13th January 2016 at 7pm in the St Michael’s Centre.
