St. Michael and All Angels has been a centre of Christian worship in the Birchwood area for over 60 years.
Our principal service is Holy Communion on Sunday morning, with a Sunday Club for children.
We also have a thriving Messy Church that meets once a month where youngsters (of all ages!) are getting to know God through art and craft!

The Transfiguration of Our Lord
09:30 – Eucharist
Celebrant & Preacher: Rt. Rev’d Dr. Michael Beasley, Bishop of Hertford
from the New Testament • 2 Peter 1.16-19
the Gospel reading • Luke 9.28-36
other readings for the day • Daniel 7.9,10,13,14 • Psalm 97
Father in heaven,
whose Son Jesus Christ was wonderfully transfigured
before chosen witnesses upon the holy mountain,
and spoke of the exodus he would accomplish at Jerusalem:
give us strength so to hear his voice and bear our cross
that in the world to come we may see him as he is;
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

• Saturday 05 August – Ramble 162
“Meet at St Michael’s Church by 9.45am to take meal orders and give directions to drive to the Waggon and Horses, Steeple Morden SG8 0NJ. Please park in their Car Park as tidily as possible.
The ramble is approximately 4 miles long on pavements and field paths with some points of interest. Hopefully a visit to St Peter’s & St Paul’s Church will be possible at the start of the walk.”
“Ramble 161 saw ten of us ramble along the border between Herts and Beds, viewing not only the scenery but the planes taking off from Luton Airport. We were joined, eventually, by two roadies for lunch in the King William IV at Mangrove Green.”
