Welcome to St. Michael’s Cornhill
Welcome to the St Michaels’s website. We hope you will feel free to visit our church, to join in our worship, to find an oasis of peace in a busy world, or simply to see the 17th century structure and its 19th century furnishings. St Michael’s is one of the few churches in the City of London which has regular Sunday services.
Every Sunday at 1100 there is a Sung Eucharist with professional choir – our priorities are dignified worship, good music and biblical preaching.These together constitute the genius of St Michael’s, and draw people from a wide area to join in worship which is formal, recognisable and, we hope, captivating. The service is followed by an opportunity for refreshments and conversation.
There is a said Eucharist every Wednesday and Friday at 1310, with a short homily.
A full range of occasional offices (Baptism, Confirmation preparation, Confession, marriage, funeral and memorial services) is also available
