Heritage Open Days Weekend
Friday 7th – Sunday 9th September in church

Every September during Heritage Open Days Weekend, some 40,000 volunteers across England organise 5,000 events to celebrate our fantastic history, architecture and culture, all of which are FREE to explore. For more information, visit  www.heritageopendays.org.uk

Our Special Exhibition for 2018 was:

The changing face of St. Michael’s over five centuries, and a chance for you to share in our plans for the future

The Church on the hill It’s your church
There for 5 hundred years It’s our shared heritage
We’ve got plans for the future We want to know what you think

Is it where you were christened? Were you married here? A loved one’s funeral? Do you come on Remembrance Sunday, or Christmas Eve? A school service perhaps? Are you a  regular or occasional worshipper here? Is the church a much loved part of the local heritage?

We’ve been working on plans to make the church building more welcoming and accessible to all the community; to preserve the heritage for future generations and be more environmentally sustainable.

Do you have mobility problems, and find it difficult getting across the churchyard and around the building? Do you feel the building isn’t child-friendly? Do you find it cold, dark and damp in the winter months? Do you like to listen the bells, but you’ve heard they’re rusty due to rain coming in through the tower walls?

Every home in the parish was invited to come to our Heritage Open Days exhibition, to see how the church has changed over the years, and make their comments.

If you didn't make it in September, you can still see the exhibition, right here on the parish website. Click here!

St Michael & All Angels Here for you
