All Age Service for the People 2015

The next All Age Eucharist is on 6th September. If you haven't been before do come along and join us. We asked people how they felt about the previous one and of course there were lots of different opinions. We are working hard at making the children's voices better heard along with other improvements to the microphone system.
The service is simpler though with all the meaning of the Eucharist firmly there and all the material is authorised by the Church of England as you would expect.
This kind of service is being offered from time to time and was welcomed as such as refreshing. The children are our present and our future and they were seen as taking part with great seriousness. A feeling of fulfilment and of being privileged to be part of something much bigger than the moment was expressed.
And what do the children think? They like the fact that they get an idea of the service and what to expect when they grow up and attend church every week.

What could be a more worthwhile outcome than that?

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.
