Welcome to Stoke St Michael's Church

The Heart of the Community

St Michael's is an Anglican church that has been the heart of the community in Stoke since it's foundation in 12th Century by the Earl of Chester, the nephew of William the Conqueror.

We are committed to loving God, learning God's ways and living for others. We want to invite you to join us; for worship, for prayer, for friendship or simply a chance to take a break from the hustle and bustle of city life.

If you need to contact the Rector, Rev'd Claire, please call 07532260027 or email: revclairestoke@gmail.com. For centre bookings please call our administrator on 02476 443691 or email: office@stokestmichaels.co.uk

We are now back in church for all our main Sunday worship services, starting at 8.00am with a said Holy communion, followed by 9.30am for our All Age Worship and then at 11.00am we have Holy Communion with our wonderful choir.

We also invite you to attend our Wednesday Communion at 10.00am face to face in church.

Due to the rising rate of Covid in the area we require all those attending to wear a facemask.

All our services are now live streamed on our Facebook Page - please see the following dedicated page here.

We are delighted that our Mother's Union group and our Mikes Tikes toddler group are continuing to meet during January 2022. Sadly our luncheon club has unfortunatley been cancelled on the 16th January. If you would like to register for a place at either group please email: revclairestoke@gmail.com

Our church is a family church and all are welcome to come and be part of our family where, as Disciples of Christ, we seek to know Him more and make Him known. There is much on offer, for all people, and we're excited by all that God is doing among us in this part of Coventry. Come and see.

Past Cases Review

In 2007, the Church of England commissioned a Past Case Review which sought to look at the handling by the church of child protection cases over many years.

All dioceses have now been asked to re-examine and extend the review (PCR2). The House of Bishops wants to ensure that our churches and church related activities are as safe as possible for children and vulnerable adults.

Please note the following letter from Bishop Christopher for information on what we're doing at St Michael's and across the Coventry Diocese.

If you any concerns regarding the safeguarding review, please contact Rev Claire, via email using this link.

More information is also available on the Coventry Diocese Safeguarding pages, under the Past Cases Review 2 pages.
