Within the latest lockdown restrictions, communal worship is permitted and attending church is a legitimate reason to leave home. This is important because it recognises the essential nature of worship to the wellbeing of individuals and to society as a whole. At Saint Michael’s we are blessed with a large and flexible space that enables worship to continue in a modified form. For those who are unable to attend church at this time, we will be livestreaming Sunday Sung Mass (details below).
Details of all services and links can be found here.

Father Stephen, Vicar of St Michael’s writes:
“St Michael’s is a Church of England parish church in Barnes, part of the Barnes Team Ministry in South-West London. It is a diverse, inclusive and lively church and you are most welcome at any services and events. The Mass celebrated with beauty and reverence is at the centre of our worship. St Michael’s is a child-friendly church with facilities for all ages, and special services for children and families.
We are fortunate to have a beautiful and historic building that’s well worth a visit. The church is currently open nearly every day from 8.45am into the afternoon until about dusk and is a peaceful place to spend a few minutes in quiet and rest.
There is something for everyone, whether through our services and concerts in church, or groups and events taking place in our Community Centre and Church Hall. Do explore the website to see more of what is going on and further information about the church and community.
St Michael’s is at the centre of a friendly and vibrant community. Whatever your own faith, belief or spirituality, the clergy and congregation of St Michael’s are here for you. If you are new to the area or worshipping with us for the first time, please do introduce yourself, and we look forward to meeting you.”
