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.
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.
Our 10.30am service will begin outside at the slightly earlier time of 10.25am with everyone gathering around the war memorial on The Green. We will be joined by the Royal British Legion, and local Uniformed Groups.
A short act of Remembrance will take place with the laying of wreaths and 2 minutes silence.
After this our young people will meet for their groups and activities in the usual places, and everyone else will gather in the auditorium in the St Michael’s Centre for the rest of our Celebration.
