St Michael’s Stoke Gifford is a lively, growing Anglican Church of roughly 450 people on the northern edge of Bristol. As a church family we are passionate about "living to make a difference" by being a "Christian heart at the centre of the community”. 

Whether it be our 4 Sunday services, weekly men’s football, young adult’s groups, messy church, 25 life groups, youth club, nursing home work, regular alpha courses, church coffee shop or any of our other activities, we focus our efforts around our three themes of discipleship, outreach and serving the community.

Our state-of-the-art auditorium and church centre opened in 2015, with further work expected to be completed in the coming year.  This fuels our ambitious ‘Heart of the Community Project’ and is extending our ability to serve.  

We play an active part in many areas of community life, and enjoy strong links with our local primary and secondary schools, pre-school and nursery provision, work at the local University of the West of England (UWE) and roles within our local scout troop. Increasingly, our vision has been towards resourcing our region, sharing the good things God has given us with others. We put a priority on working with other churches to serve our city, providing resources for the “Hope Bristol" mission, the Bristol Youthwork Forum and the annual Diocesan Conference. Hundreds of us have found a place to belong at St Michael’s – taking part and helping out. We don’t have all the answers – we just journey together, discovering new ways of living to make a difference. If you share our heart and vision, we would love you to join us.
