First time to St Michael's?
Thanks for visiting, our hope is that you'll experience God moving in your life, and that we may be part of that journey with you.
‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. The second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
We aspire to love God and offer friendship, care and love, working together to make a difference in people's lives in our communities.
What to expect at St Michael's?
St Michael’s is a family oriented parish offering a worship service for adults, youth and children. We are also a parish that seeks to serve the Newlands community through providing a collection point for a local vegetable co-op, an annual second hand uniform event and joining in with "Alpha" and other community based events with other churches in the area. We offer both traditional and contemporary worship styles and endeavour to be a warm, friendly and welcoming community.
The 10am service is a family service with a mix of hymns and worship songs led by a music group. Young children are welcome in church, and parents should feel free to go in and out of the church as often as they need. This service normally runs for around an hour, with a sermon, readings and communion and is followed by morning tea in the hall.
At each service all who are baptised are welcome to take communion with us.
What programmes are available?
We have a number of home groups, as well as other small groups where you can get to know others in a more relaxed setting, and grow faith and friendships together.
St Michael's also join with other local churches to run Alpha and Marriage courses. Check the Alpha page for more information and dates of upcoming courses.
