*received two approved Covid-19 vaccines and can show proof of same

Our 10am Sunday service runs for about 60 minutes. People familiar with Anglican worship services will be familiar with the words spoken, prayed, and sung together, yet, in an informal manner reflecting the culture of the neighbourhood in which we are located. The music in these services is a mix of traditional and contemporary Christian hymns and songs, with a variety of different music groups leading the congregation. Holy Communion (The Lord’s Supper) is shared in a Covid-safe manner on the first Sunday of the month. Kid’s church occurs in a separate, but visible space during the time of the sermon and intercessory prayers. We welcome children of pre-school to early primary school ages to Kid’s Church sessions. These are led by a small team of volunteer teachers who are fully compliant with child-safety qualifications demanded by both the State Government of Victoria and the Anglican Diocese of Melbourne. Morning tea is served after the service.

Our 5:30pm Sunday service runs for about 50 minutes and is more informal and interactive in style. The music at these services is contemporary in style and led by a variety of bands. Afternoon tea is shared from 5pm in the church foyer.

All worship services at St. Michael’s are based on authorised services from A Prayer Book For Australia (1995) as most commonly used in Anglican churches across our city.

For any further information about our worship services, please contact the office at office@stmichaelsnc.org.au or call the vicar, The Rev’d Steve Webster, on 0411471838.
