    All Saints Day - 1st November 2020

    Dear All,

    The Prime Minister has announced a new period of lockdown in England starting on November 5th which will be reviewed on December 2nd.

    During lockdown churches may only be opened for private prayer or for funeral services and therefore celebrations of the Eucharist at St Michael’s will be suspended from November 5th.

    On Sundays November 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th St Michael’s will be open between 10am and 11am for private prayer. Our recorded service will continue and will be posted on this website and on St Michael’s FaceBook page.

    We will update this information on or around December 2nd.

    With my prayers and best wishes,


    Revd Dr Angela Birkin

    Assistant Curate

  • Welcome to St. Michael and All Angels.

    Saint Michael and All Angels' Church is a an open and inclusive Church in the Liberal Catholic  tradition of Church of England. Here you will find a parish church which, in various forms, has stood at the heart of the community of Headingley since 1620.

    Here you will find wonderful Gothic architecture, fine stained glass, beautiful wrought iron work, a fine organ accompanying harmonious singing, all witnessing to the beauty and welcome of God, and the care and faithfulness of generations of Christians.

    Above all, it is here you will find a Christian Community worshipping God, praying that we may grow in love and service, and in the beauty of holiness.

    We invite all who enter to pause and make space for the God who made us and who meets us in Jesus Christ.

    On behalf of the whole worshipping community, may we welcome you to St Michael’s. We pray that God will bless your visit here.

     Revd Dr Angela Birkin
    Assistant Curate of St Michael and All Angels’ in the Headingley Team.
