St Michael and All Angels, All Stretton
St Michael and All Angels Church is a small village church in the Parish of Church Stretton. It was opened in 1902 as an Anglican Church. The Church is built of stone from the local quarry. The Church, set in its hillside garden is about 280 metres from the centre of the village, is currently open for private prayer and reflection from 10.00am to 4.00pm on Wednesdays.
When the United Reformed Chapel in the village had to close in the 1980’s, as it was in need of repair, the congregation of St Michael’s offered the use of their church when it was not in use on Sunday afternoons in winter and Sunday evenings in summer. However the two congregations later chose to merge and in 1994 a Local Ecumenical Partnership was set up between the Anglicans and the URC. At present we have our own URC minister and share the Ministry Team from St Laurence’s.
If anyone would like an NIV Bible, a Church of England service sheet, or the current URC/Iona service booklet please contact Hazel Allen.
Between 9am and 10am each Friday morning may we try to have a quiet time in our homes when we pray for each other and the world.
The village has always had a strong sense of community and cohesion, much of which centres on the Village Hall and in whose life St. Michael’s people join with enthusiasm. The keen flower arrangers from the village help to make the church look most attractive for special occasions .
As a Christian fellowship we support hospital work in Lesotho, the Barnabas Fund, Water Aid and the local charity The Ark which helps homeless people in Shrewsbury.
