Welcome

Welcome to the Parish Church of Newquay dedicated to St Michael the Archangel.

We warmly invite you to join us at your church; all are welcome. Feel free to be with us at one of our services and become a part of the family in the community.

At St Michael’s we believe that worship should be all-embracing, that it should help us to enter just a little bit into the mystery of God. A service should be a rich experience involving all the senses and the way we worship reflects that.

We use our eyes to enjoy the beauty of colour and ritual in our dress and our actions. We use our ears to hear word and music. We use our sense of smell as the smoke of incense rises as a sign of holiness and blessing, and a reminder of our prayers rising to God. We taste bread and wine as we receive Christ’s Body and Blood in Holy Communion, and we touch the wafer and the chalice as we receive.

We use our wholeselves to pray, standing, sitting or kneeling, maybe making the sign of the cross, and we use our voices to speak and sing God’s praises. Whether you prefer to see, listen or ‘do’ you will receive a warm and friendly welcome at our church.
