Church on the Green

Each summer we hold an outdoor church celebration on the village green.  

It’s an event for the whole community of Stoke Gifford, and a great chance for everyone – whether existing church members or not – to come along and share in church together.

Everyone is welcome and we  bring and share picnics, and stay to chat and play games together afterwards. 

It all starts at 11.00am  on Sunday 26th June, and takes place on The Green, Stoke Gifford.

There will also be a parade for Uniform groups, starting from the Trust Hall and arriving at the Green in time for the start at 11am.

 We look forward to seeing you there!

Please note, for this one Sunday only, this service replaces the 9am and 10.30am service

Celebrating 150 years of serving the community

To mark 150 years of serving the community St Michael’s Church and St Michael’s Primary School are hosting an open-air service of celebration followed by a family fun day.

It’s 150 years since the Old School Rooms – back then a new Victorian village school – first opened. The celebration service is taking place in front of the Old School Rooms on the village green. It will feature songs and stories from pupils past and present, Victorian hymns and a prize for those who come in Victorian dress!

Sunday 23rd June

Stoke Gifford Village Green

Bring your own picnic lunch and stay on afterwards for games, a photo exhibition by the school, an opportunity to watch the Heart of the Community project DVD, and the last chance to visit the site of the Old Barns before the diggers arrive in early July!

The whole community is invited, but pupils of St Michael’s School, past and present, are especially welcome.
