We meet on Sundays at 11am at St Michael’s Church on St Michael’s Mount to worship, give thanks to God and study the Bible. All are welcome.

We also have a new time on Sunday’s at 4pm at St Michael’s Church Centre, Raby Cross. The Byker Gathering is an opportunity to explore faith, be community, and make and enjoy food together.

What to expect

We know that sometimes visiting a church can be intimidating. Here are some answers to common questions to help you settle in. If you have more questions, or you don’t understand what’s going on at any point, please do ask someone – especially someone wearing a “welcome” badge.

What’s ‘sung worship’ all about?
We sing songs together to help us praise God. The song words will appear on the screen. Just join in with whatever you feel comfortable with!

Am I expected to give money?
People who attend St Michael’s regularly give money to maintain the life and mission of the church – please don’t feel under any pressure to give but we are very grateful for anything that you can. There is information about different ways to give at the back of the Church and on our Giving page.

What happens to children at church?
We try to make our Services engaging for all ages as we learn together about God.
If you’ve come with a little child there are toys available to the left of the door when you come in.

How can I find out more about what you believe?
We’d love to get to know you more. Please ask a member of the welcome team, or Phil the vicar, about what activities go on throughout the week – someone would love to meet with you to chat more.

A Prayer for St Michael’s

Loving Father we thank you for your presence here in Byker
and your faithfulness to us over the years.
As we continue our walk with you
help us walk with others;
showing the good news of Jesus Christ,
using our buildings, resources and talents
so that we can worship you and serve our community,
reaching out with love and welcoming all people.
Encourage us as we seek to grow together and know you more and give us strength as we seek to be true to you, loving towards others and loyal to the Gospel.
