St Michael's 950 Anniversary

St Michael's 950 Anniversary

All 950th Anniversary events are Cancelled due to Corona virus Covid19

St Michael the Archangel was founded in 1070 which makes it Southampton's oldest functioning building. 2020 represents the 950th anniversary of the church. The theme we have set is "Journeying Together - In God's Love"

The Anniversary celebrations began on Advent Sunday 2019 and will include Several Special Services throughout the liturgical year and Community Events

We have also held a Series of ConcertsIn consultation with our Director of Music, who networked tirelessly to craft the concert series, the Vicar and Standing Committee have decided that it is no longer viable to continue with these concerts due to the uncertainties created by Covid-19, including enforced social distancing and the actual closure of St Michael’s. We all very much regret this decision, which includes the ‘grand finale concert’ on Saturday 3 October.

We very much hope and pray that St Michael’s will be open to enable us to celebrate the Patronal Festival on Sunday 4 October
