St Michael & All Angels, London Fields

St. Michael’s is an open and welcoming parish church. We seek to develop a culture of creativity, shared responsibility and inclusivity.

We celebrate and enjoy the variety of our local community. People from many backgrounds worship at our weekly Sunday Parish Eucharist. While the worship is reverent, the congregation is friendly, informal and child-friendly. There are activities for children and young people and a crèche.

Church services have moments of lively participation and quiet prayerfulness. The Eucharist is at the heart of our identity as a congregation. Sermons are topical and relevant, encouraging a deepening of Christian understanding and experience of faith.

The Church’s seasons and festivals are celebrated, and the singing is supported by both a gospel-based Singing Group, and a more traditional Anglican Choir. St Michael’s seeks to show the love of God to all people.

Under our Open Church Programme, St Michael’s is open to visitors from 9am-3pm most Wednesdays throughout the year, except between Christmas and New Year and during the week after Easter.    Prayer cards and the booklets about our fine murals are available, and visitors are welcome to light a prayer candle on the votive candle stand on the right hand side as you go in. If you will be travelling some distance, please contact the Vicar before arranging your visit to check the church will be open that day.

We especially value our links with our parish school, St Paul’s with St Michael’s CE Primary School. In its most recent Ofsted report (2017, see here) St Paul’s with St Michael’s was judged outstanding. It received the same grade in its most recent inspection of RE and collective worship (2018, see here).

Whatever your reason for visiting our website, we very much hope you will want to visit St Michael’s and join in our worship and community activities.

May the God who creates, redeems and sustains us bless you on your life’s journey.

News, Events and Special Services

Bake On!

Lorraine’s highly popular baking classes for ages 10-100 are continuing for a second course as we celebrate passing on what we love. Lots of healthy recipes as well as some equally delicious treats.

Messy Church ⋅ Third Sunday of the month (next one 15 April) ⋅ 4.30-5.30pm

Messy Church is church with a difference for all ages, aimed at people who don’t normally get to Church and would like to try a different approach: a relaxed space and an activity based learning time on a Bible theme including a short celebration with story, song and prayer.
Tea/coffee/juice are served throughout and we finish around the table with a sandwich tea. Children must always be accompanied by an adult.

Discovery Lunch is an opportunity to discover more about how God shows up in the Bible, make friends, eat, pray and chat. Very relaxed, very open.
Come in the hall doors – we gather in the meeting room on the left at 1pm and leave by 3pm. This term we are meeting on April 12th, 26th; May 10th, 24th; June 7th, 21st; July 5th & 19th.
The Discovery Lunch is part of our baptism/confirmation preparation and is open to anyone new to church or just keen to eat and explore faith.
Come and join us!

Youth Choices 

Young people can make friends and explore faith at our monthly Messy Youth and monthly Youth Group as well as the Family Brunches and summer camps, but what about something on a Friday night? We heartily recommend Savannah and her team at St Anne’s, Hoxton for 8-14s (See http://www.stayg.org.uk/) or the brilliant Friday Night Encounter at St John’s http://www.stjohnshoxton.org.uk/youth/ for 11-18s.
