And that includes you

Vale Church is an inclusive church of moderate Catholic tradition in the Church of England

I have been Rector at St Michel du Valle, known simply as the Vale Church, since February 2023, The church has been witnessing to the Christian faith and serving the people of the Vale for over 1000 years. I feel very honoured to be part of this tradition as I get to know the people of the parish of the Vale, the congregation and the many people who attend our Sunday services but also those who attend weddings, baptisms and funerals here or simply visit as they pass by.

Our Parish Prayer 

Heavenly Father, pour down your Spirit upon our church and parish. Grant us a new vision of your glory, a new experience of your power, a new faithfulness to your word, and a new consecration to your service; that through our renewed witness, your holy name may be glorified, And your Kingdom come. We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord Who lives and reigns with you and The Holy Spirit, One God, World without end. Amen.


Prayer for St Michel du Valle (Vale Parish Church)

Saint Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the malice and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, I humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
