Welcome to St Andrew and St Michael
Welcome to Stockwell Parish
We are a warm and welcoming community which worships at St Michael's, Stockwell Park Road. An open Anglican church full of interesting ordinary people – professionals, NHS workers, teachers, unemployed, retired people. We are single, married, divorced, single parents or widowed. You’re always welcome here
There is also another church: St Andrew's Landor Road, which is currently closed to public worship on health & safety grounds. More information on both churches is set out on dedicated pages on this website. There is also a map, so you can see if you are in the parish and where each church is. We have lots of information on this website, which we hope you will find useful.
If you haven't been to any of our services, please do come and try us out. The 9.45am services is more modern and lower church in feel, with the 11.15am being a more traditional high church service. Both have a sung communion on Sunday mornings, and extremely good tea/coffee and eats between the services.
- Worship and teaching and music
- Children and young people's group
- Services last about 60 minutes
- We share communion together every month at both services
Will I have to do anything?
- Nothing is compulsory! You don’t need to join in anything unless you want to. All the words are in a service booklet and the hymn book. Both very easy to follow
- You’re welcome to sit anywhere
- There’s no dress code
- There is a collection during the service. But you don't have to give money if you don't want to
- We don’t worry about noisy children!
How do I get there?
- St Michael's is less than 5 minutes from Stockwell Tube station and there are lots of local buses. There is some free parking on Sundays round the corner in Stockwell Park Crescent
- We have step free access
- Room for buggies inside and a toilet and baby changing facilities in the church building (through the door to the left of the main doors as you come in)
- Hearing loop
- Space for wheelchairs
- For older people who live locally would like to come and need assistance with transport, please contact the vicar, see contact details on the right of this page
- We serve free tea, coffee and delicious eats after the service and would love to meet you and introduce you to other people.
New NSM Associate Priest, Revd Iain Faulkner joining the clergy team of Stockwell Parish
Message from Rev. Erica Wooff, Vicar of Stockwell Parish
I am delighted to announce that the Revd Iain Faulkner will be joining the clergy team of Stockwell Parish as an NSM Associate Priest. Iain will, all other things being equal, be licensed to our parish by the Archdeacon on 29th April. The Archdeacon agreed that Iain's appointment be announced to both congregations on Sunday, 18th March, in the notices. Iain was with us at both services on Sunday to greet people.
Iain works full time as senior nurse manager at the Royal Free Hospital in north London. His work as a nurse enables him to minister to those in need both within and outside of the more traditional Church setting, and also gives him superb listening and pastoral skills. Iain also has a noticeable musical gift around singing and encouraging others to use their own musical gifts in worship and will bring this to the parish both in current and in developing new forms of worship.
I introduced Iain to the Ministry Team on 15th March, and will arrange either a lunch or supper with the Standing Committee and Iain as soon as possible.
Please keep Iain in your prayers as we look forward to welcoming him to Stockwell.
St. Andrew's Church
St. Andrew's Church is currently close for publc worship on health & Safety grounds. It would cost around £2 million to renovate current under-maintenance, not including much needed modern essentials as proper disabled access and toilets. Its hall (Hammerton Hall) would cost a further £2.5 million on the same basis. The hall is locally 'listed' by the London Borough of Lambeth as “of interest architecturally”; while the church is not. The church cannot raise the amount needed for restoration and repairs to limit further deterioration. Discussions are underway with Lambeth as to the future of worship on the site.
St Michael's Church
St Michael's Church is listed as a Grade 2 building in the national register of buildings of architectural or historic interest. It requires work to restore but has no severe maintenance backlog excluding rewiring, which we endeavour to undertake shortly. However, to make it fit for purpose in the longer term would be very costly, the amount depending on the proposed changes made. St Michael's Hall dates from the 1950s, has been well-maintained, but lacks certain facilities, for example a shower.
