St Michael's Church, Bishops Stortford

St Michael’s is the church at the
centre of Bishop’s Stortford. There has probably been a church on this site
since the seventh century,  but the church as seen today was largely built
in the early 1400’s.

Christmas at St Michael's 2018

Holly Fair 2018 Holly Fair and Tower Open Day, 1st December, 10:30am-1:30pm
Travelling Crib, from Sunday 2nd December
The crib makes its way around the parish in Advent: from Sunday 2nd December, with a blessing at the 10am service.  Hosting the crib for a night is a wonderful chance to share with children the anticipation of Christ’s birth and fellowship with other families as the crib is passed on … and a moment of stillness in an otherwise busy Advent.  Do sign up in the Publicity Area in Church.
