The Church is open each day for people to spend time quietly in a holy place, to pray, light a candle or just look around. At other times, it is full to overflowing, as hundreds of people of all ages come here to worship – not just at Easter and Christmas but on Mothering Sunday, Harvest Festival and St Michael’s own Patronal Festival in September (see also Services for more details)
