We are currently rebuilding our website so that it can meet the technical needs of our 'online' world.

HLF FundedThis is being made possible by the generous support of the Heritage Lottery Fund. It forms part of a larger project which has included the successful restoration of our historical Church Tower (Shefford's oldest structure), and the development and delivery of accessible heritage information.

As this is still very much a 'work in progress', our old website is still available - just click on the 'Old Website' link above.

We're Opening For Worship Again!

We are delighted to welcome you to Holy Communion on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month @ 9am, starting from Sunday 9th August.
There will be reduced numbers of places available to ensure Covid 19 social distancing recomendations are complied with, so booking will be required (details to follow once necessary permissions etc. are in place). There is an FAQ available in the news section. An update was added to this on Sunday 26th July re the recommended use of face coverings.
We are looking forward to seeing you...

As far as we know, the online worship will continue for the forseeable future, so St Michael's and our sister church, St Mary's in Meppershall are still worshipping together on-line; still loving and still reaching out.
