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.  Before arranging your visit please contact the Vicar to check.

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 (2013, 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.
