Welcome to St Michael's Church in Galleywood, the Church on the Common

  • Christians have been meeting in this church for over 140 years and we still meet each week to worship our Creator God and we hope that you will find peace and joy as you worship with us. 

    During the week there is a variety of groups for different ages and people of different stages along what we sometimes call 'the way' - the lifelong process of discovering who Jesus is and what he wants for each one of us.
