Welcome from Father Kevin

Father Kevin Morris,  the Vicar of St Michael & All Angels, writes:

Father Kevin Morris - in redWelcome to St Michael & All Angels and our website. We hope you’ll join us over Advent and Christmas, which is a wonderful time of the year at St Michael’s.

We are a very active church, at the heart of the community in Bedford Park, and we welcome many hundreds of visitors each year. Not all are church-goers. Many come to concerts here throughout the year, and to the annual Summer Exhibition and other events in the Bedford Park Festival in June and the Chiswick Book Festival in September. We know that once through the doors, many come back here to worship as well – particularly at Christmas!

Our website is intended to reflect the full breadth and depth of our life here – and the people who make it happen, including the clergy and our many volunteers. The calendar lists all our services and concerts and many of the classes that take place here. And you can read about Who’s Who at St Michael’s, our charities and the many organisations who work with us and use the Church and Parish Hall. We should love to hear your comments and suggestions. Please email torindouglas@aol.com.

This year is a very special year for us. In June we held the 50th Bedford Park Festival, which was founded by a previous vicar of St Michael & All Angels in 1967. That marked the start of our Golden Jubilee year, running right through to the 2017 Festival. We were delighted to welcome back a dozen of our local celebrities to open our 50th Green Days weekend and to see how much they enjoyed it! We have lots more plans for 2017 which we look forward to sharing with you in due course.

In the meantime, we hope you enjoy our website and look forward to welcoming you to St Michael’s in the coming weeks and months.
