Welcome to St Michael’s Braintree!


St Michael’s Church is a lively evangelical church situated in the centre of Braintree, Essex.

During the coronavirus pandemic, we have been providing our services online – both for children & families and for adults.  Please see the Worship tab at the top right of our website to access our Sunday services.  All services are launched on a Sunday, and are then available any time after that.  The adult service is also available through St Michael’s by Phone.  These are continuing for the time being.

Following the Government announcement of the new Tier 4 restrictions on Saturday 20th December, we sadly feel it is right not to have services or private prayer in person, in church or Church House, over the Christmas and New Year period, from now until at least Sun 3rd Jan.  We will continue with our pre-recorded services on YouTube, St Michael’s by Phone and on Zoom, namely:

If you missed Carols by Candlelight, there is a pre-recorded version of it on this YouTube link: -


We are really sorry not to be able to meet in person, but hope you will be able to join us online, by phone, or on Zoom, over the Christmas period, as we celebrate the birth of Jesus, our Lord and Saviour.
We will be reviewing the situation about “in person” services early in the New Year and will keep you informed of developments.
Details of other activities are on our weekly notice sheet and monthly LINK magazine, available via tabs at the top of this website.

You can find our Worship on the web online services:
