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.

               St Michael's wins a DESIGN AWARD

    Bishop Stephen's office writes: "I am pleased to advise you that "The Big Project" – Phase 1 - has been awarded a “Highly Commended Design Award by the Diocesan Advisory Committee.

    "The judges commented on the scheme and expressed their delight that your reordering project has made the best use of the space available and has delivered flexibility within the building which was not achieved beforehand.  We appreciated the excellent work to re-configure and re-install the pipe organ in a new dedicated organ gallery where it can be seen and be a valued instrument, also the Oak screen and new joinery was also excellent."

    Derek and Anne Martin accepting the award on behalf of St Michael's from Bishop Stephen.

    We will be running Alpha, an opportunity to discover Christian faith.  Alpha will run twice monthly on a Sunday afternoon around tea time - 4/4:30pm 

    Our proposed start date is 4th June with the second session running on the 18th June.  Food and childcare is provided, but do let us know your needs in advance!

    At the Annual Meeting of Parishioners and Annual Parochial Church Meeting held on Tuesday 25th April 2017

    Following the theft in March of the boot sale van and much of the equipment used the team have met together prayerfully and decided to launch an appeal to raise funds to replace the items.  If you would like to help relaunch this fantastic ministry there are several ways to donate.

    You can write a cheque, payable to 'Church at Car Boot Sale Boreham' - sent to:
    CACBS c/o 142 Watchouse Road, Chelmsford CM2 8NQ

    Bank details for direct payment can be obtained from Colin Dawson

    To use a credit or debit card, you are also welcome to donate via Just Giving (note they do take a small fee for processing the donation - but we are happy with that if this way of giving is more convenient)

    Go to: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/churchatcarbootsale

    For more information about the Church at the Car Boot Sale talk to Martin Wilson or Colin Dawson or look at their website or Facebook page.
