We are a Church of England Church in Blackheath, with a wide range of people of all ages and backgrounds. In all our services we aim to worship God through Jesus Christ and learn from the Bible together, because we believe it is the primary way in which God helps and guides us in our lives. There is a warmth and friendliness about the people of St Michael’s that often makes visitors want to stay and become part of things.
We currently meet in the Church Hall whilst renovation works continue on the main building until June. Our principal service is at 10.30 am on a Sunday morning. There is a crèche for the under-3s and different groups for 3-6s, 7-11s and 11 -14s. Evening services at 6.30pm are smaller. Once a month there is a communion service according to the Book of Common Prayer at 9am and a special service at 5pm for small children. We have a number of home groups and a wide variety of different social events which draw our church community together. For more information consult our Values and Get Involved pages.
Preserve, Restore, Improve St Michael’s
Our Church building is shut for renovation at the moment (our PRISM project), but our church services and church life are very much on-going! Do join us in the church hall, next to the church, for our services.
PRISM is a once-in-a-generation project to restore and improve the church building externally and internally. The exterior stonework has been deteriorating and we need to act now to preserve and restore it. This includes the gargoyles, pinnacles, the east window, the iconic tower and steeple known as the Needle of Kent.
Internally, we are planning modern heating and lighting and will make the church a more welcoming and open place for better community use, with glass porches, better wheelchair access, improvements to the dais, viewing line & safer galleries. Follow the link here for more details including how to donate. The PRISM building works are on schedule and we hope to be back in church by the end of August 2018.
