St.Michael's needs your help and support. Click here to see how you can help
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 are all things we have been building here for centuries, through wars, plagues, good times and bad times. As we come out of a global pandemic and face uncertain times, we are going to have to rebuild, even re-socialise. The pandemic has taught us how much we need community and each other.
Come on the journey with us - be an Aldershot Parish Community Builder - it means commitment in both time and giving.
Whatever stage of life you're at we'd 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.
A brief history of our church...
The land on which St. Michael's now stands was personally owned by Alfred the Great and when he died he left the land to the monks of Winchester.
It is likely that the Church was originally built between 1120 and 1150 - there are signs of the middle ages around the Church and the oldest bell has been rung since 1380. During the reign of Elizabeth I the tower was rebuilt and formed part of the beacon chain to warn against the coming of the Spanish.
In 1645 Royalist troops invaded the village and set fire to the houses but the Church was spared the fires and survived. The clock was installed in 1799 and in 1801 a body snatching scare led to the construction of the distinctive brick-arched graves in the churchyard.
By 1859 the relocation of the British Army to the Aldershot Camp swelled the population from 875 to 16,000 and the Church was extended and further extended to its present size in 1911.
Come and visit us to find out more about this beautiful, historic building.
We, "Vicar Alwyn" and Hannah, Chris and Ursula (Church Wardens), Mike (Deputy Warden), Urs (LLM) and all of us, would love the opportunity to meet you. Come along and introduce yourself to us....
