St Michael's Rocester


St. Michael’s is a friendly, lively Anglican church based in the historical village of Rocester. 

Our Sunday morning service is at 10.30am and has a mix of modern and traditional hymns and songs. Children go out to their groups shortly after the first hymn and return to receive communion (or a blessing). It is usually Holy Communion, except on the third Sunday of each month when we have a Service of the Word. This is intended for all ages with youth and children particularly welcome. It usually has more modern worship songs.

We have a children's group that meets during the Sunday service. 

We are working towards being a Dementia Friendly Place. dementia friendly logo


Each Monday afternoon (1.30 pm-3.00 pm) our committed group of crafters meet to chat, have a cuppa and biscuit and do some craft activities.  Each person brings something such as knitting, sewing or other craft.   They create items to be sold for charity, including knitted poppies.

It is a warm, welcoming place and indeed is now registered as a Place of Welcome.  

All are welcome.  

If you don't fancy knitting or sewing, bring something else - or just sit and natter.
