In the heart of heighington and open to all

You are certain of a warm welcome at St Michael’s. Come

along to one of our services and worship God in a friendly and

inviting atmosphere. We have both Church of England and

Methodist members. The parish also has a second small

church, St Andrew’s, at Bolam. We are proud of our strong links

with Heighington CE Primary School.

If   you   come   to   a   service   at   9.30am   on   a   Sunday   or   at   10am   on   a   Thursday, please   join   us   for   tea   or   coffee   and   biscuits   afterwards,   with   a   pleasant   chat, and also purchase items from the Traidcraft stall or bookshelf.
The   recently    refurbished   church tower    was    originally    a    watch- tower   and   signal   station   —   but now   provides   a   reference   point, representing   peace   of   a   different sort. People    have    worshipped    here for   centuries   –   St   Michael’s   has stood   since   Norman   times   –   and today   Christians   are   working   out what   it   means   to   be   followers   of Jesus    Christ    in    our    own    times too. Our   church   is   the   centre   of   the village,    and    as    a    congregation we   seek   to   be   identified   with   the community    of    which    we    are    a part.
