    Delayed Retirement

    What a lot can happen in a week! As the Covid-19 situation continues to develop, Angela is one of the people who have been advised to remain at home for the next 12 weeks. In the light of this, Tony and Bishop Paul have agreed that Tony’s retirement will be delayed, until the end of July at this point. So St Michael’s will be well supported, both by Angela and Tony, even if we can’t physically be together at the moment.


  • Welcome to St. Michael and All Angels.

    Saint Michael and All Angels' Church is a an open and inclusive Church in the Liberal Catholic  tradition of Church of England. Here you will find a parish church which, in various forms, has stood at the heart of the community of Headingley since 1620.

    Here you will find wonderful Gothic architecture, fine stained glass, beautiful wrought iron work, a fine organ accompanying harmonious singing, all witnessing to the beauty and welcome of God, and the care and faithfulness of generations of Christians.

    Above all, it is here you will find a Christian Community worshipping God, praying that we may grow in love and service, and in the beauty of holiness.

    We invite all who enter to pause and make space for the God who made us and who meets us in Jesus Christ.

    On behalf of the whole worshipping community, may we welcome you to St Michael’s. We pray that God will bless your visit here.

    Revd. Tony Whatmough

    Vicar of St. Michael’s Church. Team Rector of the Headingley Team
