Imagine a Christ-centred community, living to make a difference,
where people from all walks of life are welcomed,
different sections of our community meet, and
all are invited to come and experience what God has destined for us...
It is how we all strive to be.
WE ARE A FAMILY
We are Nan, Grandpa, Mum, Dad, Uncle, Aunt,
brother, sister, baby and even 'Rover'
- an intergenerational people filled with the Holy Spirit, who love Jesus.
Our heart is to journey together, facing all that life throws at us,
to become a strong loving, mature Christian community
that enables everyone to flourish in Aldershot.
RESILIENCE, WHOLENESS, WELLBEING
These are the things we have been building here for centuries,
through wars, plagues, good and bad times.
As we come out of a global pandemic and face uncertain times,
we are looking to rebuild our community, even re-socialise.
The pandemic has taught us how much we need community and each other.
COME AND SEE
As we are getting used to different, come on the journey with us
be an Aldershot Parish Community Builder
it means commitment in both time and giving
while receiving so much more than gratitude.
WE ARE HERE
Whatever stage of life you are at we would love to get to know you,
to invite you to be part of this journey, and
to experience the love of the Father,
the compassion of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit.
We, "Vicar Alwyn" and Hannah, Ursula (Church Warden), Kieran (Church warden), Mike (Deputy Warden),Urs (LLM) and all of us, would love the opportunity to meet you.
Come along and introduce yourself to us....
The Church have a strong choir and music tradition and people with kind, loving hearts who support and care for each other during difficult times. Our senior congregation members has persisted through all the challenges of no heating, pandemic to committedly gather every Sunday to worship. The church is held with great affection, rather like everyone’s favourite ‘grand aunt’.
Despite Covid the numbers of young families has increased.
There is a thriving youth group.
The young people launched an evening Service in October 21.
The relationship with the school has been re-established with regular weekly collective worship and termly experience Services. Additionally, St.Michael’s has been piloting, and is ahead of the curve, intergenerational and Experience Services. New connections have also been made with the local secondary school and R.E lead teachers in Hampshire, and with the Council and other local churches.
"journeying together to become worshippers,
enabling everyone to flourish in Aldershot"
The Lord is calling us to create
a new centre of excellence
in worship, in mission, in realistic care
which is intentional about
disciple-making, church growth
and church multiplication.
