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.
Saint Michael's Church, Flixton
348 Church Road
The life of our church is sustained by worship and prayer. All are welcome to join us for any of our services.
Regular Sunday Worship:
8.00am Holy Communion
A quiet, said service of Holy Communion with a short reflection. A good way to begin the day. This service lasts about 40 minutes.
10.15am Parish Eucharist
This is our main Sunday service of Holy Communion with hymns, choir, sermon and music. This service lasts around 1hr 15 minutes. St Michael’s Sunday School runs in parallel from 10:00am and the children join us for the final part of our worship. The Service is followed by coffee in Church Croft to which all are welcome. On special occasions we have an 'All-Age' Service and the whole church family worship together, old and young, we are also joined by our uniformed organisations.
4.00pm Family Praise on the FIRST SUNDAY of each month.
This is a short, informal and usually quite noisy service for young families! We meet in church for interactive songs, readings, prayers and a thought for the week.
6.30pm Choral Evensong with Sermon
This is a traditional service from the Book of Common Prayer of 1662, and is a lovely, peaceful way to end the day. The service is almost all sung- with hymns, psalms, canticles and prayers and is lead by our parish choir.
There is a simple service of Holy Communion at 10.15am every THURSDAY followed by Thursday Café and Book Bazaar in Church Croft.
Morning prayer (from Common Worship) is said daily at 9.05am
Open Church, Monday, Wednesday and Friday between 10am-12noon. We try to keep our church open as much as possible with a team of voluntary Stewards.
Peewits - Worship for Tiny tots and Parents/Carers with songs and stories. In Church Croft every Wednesday at 9.30am. Peewits is worship specially designed for pre-school age children.
Check out our calendar to see what’s going on this month.
If you are unable to attend Church because of illness or disability and would like to receive Holy Communion at home from one of our Eucharistic Ministers, please ask one of the Church Wardens.
We have a committed and steadfast team of volunteers who week by week visit the sick and bereaved. Many are also licensed to take Holy Communion to those who for one reason or another are no longer able to come to church services; this includes those in several of our local nursing homes.
This work is a valuable part of Christís ministry in our parish and it makes a huge difference to the lonely and bereaved to know the love of Jesus through this work.
