Hello and welcome to the website of St Michael’s Catholic Church in Ashtead.

We are delighted to have Fr Anthony Churchill as our parish priest.

St Michael’s is a happy community with a lot happening, on a lot of fronts, all the time. Around this website you will find all the information you need to come and join us in whatever way you please. You will certainly be made most welcome.

Our parish is part of the Catholic Diocese of Arundel and Brighton. But we see ourselves as a vital part of the wider world community. ‘Vital’, because we have a God given responsibility to our neighbours and particularly to our neighbours who are less fortunate than we are. At St Michael’s, this is a central part of the philosophy which underpins our parish life.

Again, welcome to St Michael’s. Please have a look around and if you like even a small part of what you see, then say hello to one of our welcomers, or a member of our parish pastoral team, to Fr Tony Churchill, or to Deacon David Pattinson. We’ll be delighted to meet you and to make you feel at home and to listen to your ideas.

God bless you and please pray for the repose of the soul of our former Parish Priest, Canon Anthony Whale, who died on 26th May 2016.
