We are currently rebuilding our website so that it can meet the technical needs of our 'online' world:
- It needs to work with whatever device you are viewing it on (smart phone, tablet, laptop, desktop etc).
- It needs to provide you with relevant, up-to-date information
- It needs to enable contributions from the widest range of individuals and groups to ensure that it reflects the life of our Church in all it's many forms
Above all, it needs to make it easier for you to discover the opportunities for worship, fellowship and heritage offered by St Michael's Church to the community of Shefford.
This is being made possible by the generous support of the Heritage Lottery Fund. It forms part of a larger project to restore our historical Church Tower (Shefford's oldest structure), and to provide 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.
Listed below are the next ten events at St Michael's. If you want to see further ahead, please click on the 'What's On' link above.
Wednesday 6th March 2019
Join us in our Lent Course which this year is based on a booklet entitled '40 DAYS OF REFLECTIONS ON THE BEATITUDES' written by Steven Croft, the Bishop of Oxford.
We have already run out of copies of the booklet, but you can still join us by downloading the app to your smart phone: https://www.chpublishing.co.uk/apps/lentpilgrim.
However you take this pilgrim journey, make space as we seek to know Jesus better and to become more Christ-like

People in care homes often feel isolated from the communities that they have contributed so much to.
Churches Together in Shefford regularly take the joy of fellowship, singing and worship to those who can simply no longer get to church...
Everyone is welcome.
