MBBC Music Day 2016

On Friday 3rd June at 7 pm the ringers of St Michael's Church Tilehurst will be ringing a quarter peal as part of "Bells Ring Out" for BBC Music Day.

They will be joining with ringers from churches and cathedrals all over the country.

St Michael's greatly values its accomplished band of ringers and last Sunday congratulated 3 of the young ringers on their awards earned in a national scheme to encourage the ringing of church bells.

There have been bells at St Michael's since 1723 and a project has just begun to recast and refurbish the existing bells and increase the number from 8 to 10

A service to Celebrate Marriage at St Michael's Church, Tilehurst, Reading

If you, or someone you know, was married at St Michael's (no matter how long ago it was, nor if they are widowed, or divorced - they may still wish to celebrate their marriage) please send their names and current contact details, and, if possible, the date of the marriage, to Mrs Eileen White or Mrs Jenny Beeney, c/o St Michael's Parish Office, St Michael's Church, Routh Lane, Tilehurst, RG30 4JX by 31st March 2016.

Vanlore Tomb  St Michaels Font

Sir Peter Vanlore Tomb                   St Michael's Church - The Font

Welcome to St Michael's, a calm and peaceful place of prayer, worship and hospitality within the suburban area of Reading. Our beautiful church is used regularly for worship and prayers are said daily. We hope that you will feel God's presence and take his peace with you when you leave. Christians have been worshipping here for at least seven hundred years. This church was constructed in the 13th century AD and is dedicated to St Michael.

St Michael's congregation meets regularly to witness the love of God expressed in life, death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Our worship is focussed on the Eucharist - the communion meal, which is celebrated each Sunday morning and mid week on a Wednesday morning. We draw strength from worshipping and praying together and being part of the worldwide community of Christians which endeavours to love and serve God in every aspect of life.

Take yourself on a pilgrimage as you walk round the church and you will come upon certain places which may prompt you to reflect on their spiritual significance.

Remember also, as you pass the tombs and epitaphs of those remembered in this church, that you are one of many thousands who have walked this way as they journeyed through their lives.

Please take a moment to think of those that you love in your own lives.

You can find details of our regular services, as well as special services and other events, together with our latest news and you can also find out how to join one of our church groups, which include choirs, bell ringers and the flower team. Just select a link from the menu bar above.

We look forward to welcoming you to St Michael's and hope very much that you enjoy your visit.
