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 are now back in our newly refurbished main church building following a year of works. 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. 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.
Exterior church lighting ideas
We are exploring some ideas to SUBTLY light parts of the church exterior to show the building to its best advantage and enhance the general ambience of the immediate area. Below are some photos of some of the lighting ideas we are considering. If you have any questions, please do contact the church office at email@example.com
Our PRISM church restoration project is complete!
This has been a major project, taking 10 months, restoring, repairing and renewing vital external stonework and doing internal improvements with new heating & lighting plus better sightlines & access and redecoration. This has been a huge project costing £1,040,000. We have done a vast amount of fundraising, successfully applied for some grants – we are very grateful for generous grants given by: Allchurches Trust; Garfield Weston Foundation; Morden College (Dame Susan Morden Charity); Viridor Credits Environmental Company, and have also taken out £80k of 4 year loans (– so we are still fundraising to repay those). We hope that we now have both a splendid historic Georgian building that preserves the best of the past, & a modern flexible space with state of the art sound, visual & lighting systems, & a large seating capacity. That combination of old and new we think is very exciting. Follow the link here for more details including how to donate. For latest pictures click here.
