Welcome to St Michael's Church, Flixton. We believe that worship is our primary purpose before God, and all else in our Christian life should flow from that. Christians have worshipped on this site for at least 900 years making this one of the ancient parishes of Manchester Diocese.

The season of Lent is the 6 weeks leading up to Easter Sunday. During this season we prepare ourselves for the Easter miracle through Prayer and Meditation.
Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? Isaiah 43:19
