Here is my video thought for Mothering Sunday 2020 :



We are a group of all ages worshipping and serving God in our neighbourhood.

St Michael’s is on an exciting path to explore what it means to share the good news of Jesus Christ with those who live, work, learn and play in the neighbourhood.

Situated in between the Northcote Road Wandworth Common, we are an area well known for family life. In our parish we have four local schools, we host a day centre for older members of the community, we have a cafe church for informal worship as well as a more traditional service on a Sunday mornings and fully believe that the whole family can get involved at St Michael's.


St Michael's is registered charity number 1185687
