NB During Covid-19, please see This Week for the most up-to-date information about public worship in the parish.
Our worship of God lies at the heart of all that we do at St Michael’s. Services are offered every day, but our main act of worship is the Solemn Mass on Sundays at 11am. This Mass is celebrated with full catholic ceremonial, and we are aided in our worship by the singing of our wonderful choir.
During school term-time, a Sunday School operates during the 11am Mass. All children of at least primary-school age are welcome to participate in the activities provided.
Morning and Evening Prayer
Throughout the week, each day is punctuated by the Prayer of the Church. We meet together each week day to join with Christians around the world in offering Morning Prayer and Evening Prayer. In these services we recite and mediate upon God’s word, particularly the Psalms, and sing hymns and offer our prayers to the Lord for the day ahead or the day past.
We also meet every day of the year around the altar, to allow ourselves to be fed by Jesus in Word and Sacrament.
The Daily Mass is an integral and vital part of our ministry and mission at St Michael’s. Many people cross our threshold in the course of each week to join us for this important act of worship.
The Daily Mass normally lasts around 35 minutes.
