We are currently rebuilding our website so that it can meet the technical needs of our 'online' world.

HLF FundedThis is being made possible by the generous support of the Heritage Lottery Fund. It forms part of a larger project which has included the successful restoration of our historical Church Tower (Shefford's oldest structure), and the development and delivery of accessible heritage information.

As this is still very much a 'work in progress', our old website is still available - just click on the 'Old Website' link above.

Changes after 'Freedom Day'

From 1st September 2021 we are worshipping together in church once more (see below for current details):

Sundays @ 09.45

1st & 3rd Sundays - Holy Communion
2nd & 4th Sundays - Morning Prayer

Fridays @ 10.30
Holy Communion each week, except
Friday before 3rd Sunday which will be Morning Worship

We are streaming services via Facebook live twice a day. Online worship will continue for those unable to attend, so St Michael's and our sister churches, St Mary's in Meppershall and All Saints in Campton are still worshipping together on-line; still loving and still reaching out.

We are doing this twice a day at 9 0'Clock (Monday to Saturday):

You can either join us via Facebook Live, or if you're not a Facebook member you can join us via You Tube.

You can also listen to the latest Sunday service via our 'Listen-in Worship Blog', or by phone - please share this if you know someone who doesn't have access to the internet - dial: 01462 559112 (local call charges apply).
