About Our Church

Our Ministry Team

Currently St Michael’s is in vacancy and we are advertising for a new vicar through our patron CPAS. We have supplied a Parish Profile for potential candidates to see who we are and what we do.

Whilst we await this new appointment, we’re very fortunate to have a strong team of retired clergy and a Reader (Recognised Lay Minister)  attached to the church, as well as our valued churchwardens, who can undertake all the duties in the meantime.

Above are our Clergy and Reader team: Revd Tony Cardwell, Revd Canon Lillian Heptinstall, Revd David Edinborough, Lalage Smithurst and Revd Jonathan Smithurst.

Below are our churchwardens, Stan Heptinstall and David Jones.


Here at St Michael’s, we are committed to supporting others. We have strong links with mission partners in Guatemala (CMS), the Middle East, and in Tanzania and Bulgaria (OneCollective). We also donate to people in need through Christian Aid, harvest projects, the Bestwood and Bulwell Foodbank, a Christmas Shoebox Appeal, a Christmas Toy Appeal and we have provided support for Ukraine through the charity T4U.

We are delighted to announce that St Michael’s is officially recognised as having achieved silver status as an Eco Church and is one of only seven churches in the Diocese to achieve this. This means that we seek to be environmentally sustainable in all that we do. 


We are grateful to our members for their financial, as well as practical, support. Visit our Giving page to find out why Christians choose to give and the different methods for supporting all that the church has offer to our community and beyond.
