In the heart of heighington and open to all

You are certain of a warm welcome at St Michael’s. Come

along to one of our services and worship God in a friendly and

inviting atmosphere. We have both Church of England and

Methodist members. The parish also has a second small

church, St Andrew’s, at Bolam. We are proud of our strong links

with Heighington CE Primary School.

If you come to a service at 9.30am on a Sunday or at 10am on a Thursday, please join us for tea or coffee and biscuits afterwards, with a pleasant chat, and also purchase items from the Traidcraft stall or bookshelf.
The recently refurbished church tower was originally a watch-tower and signal station but now provides a reference point, representing peace of a different sort. People have worshipped here for centuries St Michael’s has stood since Norman times and today Christians are working out what it means to be followers of Jesus Christ in our own times too. Our church is the centre of the village, and as a congregation we seek to be identified with the community of which we are a part.
