Is There More to Life Than This?


A new Alpha Course starts Thursday 24 September.

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that freely explore the basics of the Christian faith with no pressure and no charge. There's food, a short talk and a discussion at the end where you can share your thoughts. 

Alpha is for anyone who’s curious...the talks are designed to encourage debate and explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, honest and informal environment.

Click here to find out more about Alpha, or to join the upcoming course, contact the church office

And if you're thinking of coming, or if you're thinking of inviting someone...try this.


More about us

ViewBishop's Cleeve lies just north of Cheltenham, between the Cotswold Hills and the River Severn. Our church has been the centre of village life for over 800 years, and today we are home to a wide range of people who are discovering the difference God makes in our lives.

St Michael and All Angels (usually known just as St Michael's) is the central church of the Anglican Benefice which also includes Oxenton, Woolstone, Gotherington, Woodmancote, Cleeve Hill and Southam. You can find out about our smaller communities at Our Churches & Communities, including our local Methodist, Catholic and Free churches.

If your interest is in marking one of life's big events, have a look at Weddings, Baptisms & Funerals; or if you'd like to know about some of the exciting things we do as Christians go to Our Life Together. Children & Young People describes the programme we run specifically for them; while Historic Buildings & Records discusses our historic building and our extensive graveyard records. Worship, Music & Bells takes a detailed look at these aspects of our church's life, and lastly Official Stuff deals with all the good governance and administration that it takes to keep a church running - including our Church Council.
