Welcome to St Michael’s
**ALL SERVICES CURRENTLY SUSPENDED**
St Michael’s is the smallest of the three churches in our team. However, there is a lot to discover inside! We meet on Sundays at Sharmans Cross Junior School where we set up our worship space together.
Many of the people who belong to St Michael’s think of it as part of their family and – like a family – we are made up of a great variety of ages and experiences. We work together to run St Michael’s, and many members of the church have a role in a range of areas from serving coffee to playing and singing in the band.
St Michael’s provides spaces for learning and fellowship for all ages. St Michael’s is part of the Children, Families and Youth ministry across the parish so there are plenty of opportunities for younger members to make friends and to grow in faith. St Michael’s also has a variety of opportunities for older members to learn and to share their faith where all questions are welcome!
The worship at St Michael’s is centred around the celebration of the Eucharist both on Sundays and during the week. Music, discussion, silence and reflective prayer are also important parts of our way of life. The people of St Michael’s have a genuine love and care for each other which shows itself in many practical ways, especially in times of need. At St Michael’s we recognise that everyone is different and special, and that God’s love is for all.
We look forward to welcoming you,
The Revd Simon Marshall, Team Vicar
Sundays at St Michael’s
Our main activity is to worship God together. On Sundays we celebrate the Eucharist at 10.30am at Sharmans Cross School, and on the 2nd Sunday of the month an All-Age service takes place at 10.30, followed by a Eucharist at 4.30pm in the chapel.
We enjoy singing all kinds of hymns and songs, ranging from traditional hymns to the latest children’s songs. Our music is accompanied by a range of instruments including piano, guitar and, at All-Age services, a small band.
Children are an important part of the life of St Michael’s. At our Sunday service children are invited to go along to Sunday Club where they can take part in fun activities and learning designed especially for them. Those who lead Sunday Club are DBS-checked members of the church.
Through the week
In the week the Eucharist is celebrated at St Michael’s Chapel, (10am on Wednesdays) which is next to the vicarage at Oak Cottage in Bryanston Road. It is here that other meetings, services and activities are held. We also have home-based groups for adults where we learn together about our Christian faith. Throughout the year there are activities for children, parents and toddlers and children’s uniformed groups.
St Michael’s engages with the community through involvement with Marie Curie, Solihull Churches Action on Homelessness, Acorns, the Solihull Town Centre Chaplaincy and Macmillan Cancer Care.
