Everyone has a different understanding of what Church is. Church can be different for every person, but at the heart of any definition of what real church is, is people. Its people that make the community that calls itself the church.
In February 2018 we hosted a Narnia Festival at which over 2000 people walked through the doors of the wardrobe and experienced the church telling the Christian story. Over that week we spoke to all sort of people from different ages, backgrounds and families. One thing we discovered was people wanted to be part of a community. Having listened to what people said we have decided now is the time to launch something new.
On Sunday 24th June, St. Michael's hosted a Summer Celebration in which we launched a new community gathering. We are following this up with a monthly gathering on the 2nd Sunday of the Month at 4pm
CHURCH NOT AS YOU KNOW IT
