We are delighted that public worship has resumed at Saint Michael’s. During August there is a slightly reduced service schedule on Sunday with Low Mass at 8am, Parish Mass at 10am, but not Children’s Mass at 11.30am or Evening Prayer at 6pm. Midweek services are largely as normal.
We appreciate that some people still need to take extra precautions for health reasons and, therefore, 10am Mass will continue to be filmed and broadcast so it may be watched at home. Orders of Service can be downloaded and printed. 8am 10am
Note: You don’t need to sign up to Facebook to watch – if a pop-up box invites you to join, please click it away and carry on watching.
The church is open from around 8.45am until dusk every day, except Friday, to the public for personal prayer and reflection. You are welcome to come and spend time in the church on your own or with anyone in your household. Appropriate procedures will be in place for everyone’s safety.
For more information please do contact the Parish Office, which is operational, albeit on reduced hours: firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.”
