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 on selected days each year. For details of this year’s programme 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

Harvest Thanksgiving All Age Eucharist
10am on Sunday 2 October followed by a ‘Bring and Share’ Lunch and Auction of Produce in the Church Hall. All welcome.
As children and adults bring harvest gifts up to the sanctuary, we praise God in uplifting singing and drumming for the bounty of creation. At the same time, this Eucharist involves a commitment to care for the whole planet, and especially for those in need. Donations of non-perishable food are requested for St Saviour’s Priory for their work with the homeless and Hackney Foodbank to support families and individuals in crisis. Perishable goods will be auctioned after the Lunch, with proceeds for church funds.
