This website is intended to reflect the full breadth and depth of our life at St Michael’s – and the people who make it happen, including the clergy and our many volunteers. But it is work in progress, and will remain so for some time. Our old website will remain as an archive site, recording our past. We will direct you towards it when appropriate, but we hope that, over time, the most important of those pages will find new life on this site.
