Welcome to the community of
St Michael the Archangel
This is the website of the Christian community in West Hill
Due to the coronavirus outbreak the Church of England has decided that all churches should now be completely closed.
Contact details for members of the Clergy are in The Messenger or use the "Contact Us" page on this site.
We very much hope that it will not be too long before we are back to our church services as usual.
If there is anything additional you would like to see on this site, please let us know through the "Contact Us" page.
Spring is a metaphor for change.
Some changes we eagerly await, and some we abhor.
Some changes we plan and others arrive uninvited.
To all these changes we ask the gift of Your perspective beckoning us to expectation, hope, and rebirth.
May the sunlight and the rain be reminders that You are at work renewing the earth. As a God of renewal, You are ever at work in our lives, too.
Open our eyes and lives to the needed changes in our lives this Spring. Awaken us to new life and perspective, for we pray in Jesus’ name.
St Michael's is the parish church in the beautiful East Devon village of West Hill.
We are part of The Otter Vale Mission Community with St Mary's in Ottery and churches in the surrounding villages of this part of East Devon.
West Hill is a vibrant village community of some 2000 souls with a wide range of social and community organisations covering sports, artistic activities, gardening, music and film and groups for women & men, young and old.
"So come, you who have much faith and you who have little,
You who have been here often
and you who have not been here long
and you who have tried to follow and you who have failed.
Come, because it is the Lord who invites you.
It is his will that those who want him should meet him here."
