• Welcome to St Michael and All Angels' Church, Galleywood!

    For nearly 150 years, Christians have been meeting to worship God in our beautiful church building, in the peaceful setting of Galleywood Common.

    We are a family-friendly Church of England church, where everyone is welcome and valued, and can find a place to call "home". We are a sssshhhh-free church, so we especially welcome children - please don't worry if they make a bit of noise! We are an informal church, so don't worry if you need to turn up a bit late for some reason, or if you're not sure what to do. We are a Jesus-centred church, and we seek to base our lives on Jesus' teaching, life, death, resurrection and ascension. We are a biblical church, so we value Bible teaching and reflection. We are a prayerful church, which continually holds up its members and its community to God in prayer. We are a loving church, which is involved in various projects in our local community here in Galleywood.

    All of this is summed up in our vision prayer: Jesus, teach us all to love

    Please join us for our services! For any enquiries about baptisms, weddings or funerals, please contact our vicar Revd David Cattle (contact details below).
