An Inclusive Church
St Michael and All Angels is the parish church for people living in Ashurst, Birch Green, Elmers Green, Fosters Green as well as the village of Dalton.
We believe in a welcoming church that accepts and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ. A church that seeks to proclaim the Gospel with a fresh vision for each generation and, through the power of the Holy Spirit, allows all people to discover how widely embracing and deep is the love of Jesus Christ.
Here at St Michael’s Church, Dalton, we are committed to practicing the inclusive Gospel of Jesus Christ and as a community, we believe that we are called to serve God by bearing witness to the Good News of Jesus.
Our parish is a diverse community and we welcome people of all ages, experiences, lifestyles, outlooks and backgrounds, following the example Christ gave of serving God through family, friends and neighbours, those we meet and know and those who remain unknown to us.
We are an inclusive church and we do not discriminate in any way, whether in terms of economic means and social standing, age, gender, physical or mental health, ability, race or sexuality.
Whoever you are and wherever you are on your journey of faith you are welcome at St Michael’s.
St Michael’s Church wants to give people the opportunity to find hope and be transformed. For each one of us to live as God intends, using all our gifts and talents to fill the world with love, peace and hope. We recognise that we live in a diverse community, in a complex world and we seek to be Christ-like, both as individuals and as a community: celebrating the light, love and grace which is given to all by God. We believe that Jesus Christ is the one who brings light into all forms of darkness.
