Welcome to St Michael's Wandsworth Common

At this time of crisis we want to maintain our six values

directed by Jesus

attentive to need

offering what we have

enabling all age participation

thankful

developing a culture of try.

We will do this by working and praying for the welbeing of whole parish, especially the welfare of the elderly with our partners Regenerate-Rise. We will seek to enable corporate worship and prayer to thrive through methods that keep us physically distanced. The aim of this is to see us grow in faith, hope and love, to the fulfilment of ourselves, the blessing of the wider community and the glory of God.  

This website invites you to join in - through volunteering, giving money or food, and joining in with acts of prayer and worship. 

Sunday 5 July: Zoom service but with provision for up to 30 people (sorry no children) to participate in the church buiding.  For more on our Sunday worship, please go to the 'Coming Up' section of the website.

We are now open for private prayer at the following times:

Mondays 9am - 12 noon

Tuesdays 9am-11am

Wednesdays 6.30-7.30pm

When the building is closed you can still bring supplies for elderly people.

 Please leave the items in our south entrance, inside the metal gate, at 9-12noon Monday, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.  Details of what we need is here https://stmichaels-battersea.churchdesk.com/page/45/supply-box-list-older-people
