Welcome to St Michael's Church in Galleywood

  • For nearly 150 years, Christians have been meeting to worship God in our beautiful church building, in the peaceful setting of Galleywood Common. Everyone is welcome - we hope that you will find peace and joy as you worship with us. 

    During the week there is a variety of groups for different ages and people of different stages along what we sometimes call 'the way' - the lifelong process of discovering who Jesus is and what he wants for each one of us.
