£908 for Ride & Stride


Ride & Stride on September 11th raised £908 - half for the Gloucester Historic Churches Trust, and half for our own heritage.

We had 8 Cyclists and 4 Walkers, 5 children also went visiting with their families. Jane cycled to 42 churches; Kelly and Gemma walked to 12.

All those taking part had a great time, met interesting people, witnessed Christianity at work in various places and learned a lot about our county heritage.

Faith on the Frontline

FrontlinesFaith on the Frontline is our Autumn 2014 programme, re-imagining life between Sundays.

We'll understand our ‘Frontline’ as that place where we recognise God’s calling to engage with non-Christians in mission. This includes us all (retired, paid or unpaid employee, boss, unemployed, parent, carer…)


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.
