The monthly St Michael’s Lectures series was founded at the church in 1992. Lectures are free with a voluntary retiring collection; a warm welcome is extended to everyone.
The series explores contemporary issues connected with faith and society, Christianity and our heritage, and are enjoyed by people from many different churches and none.

In April 2014, the St Michael’s Lectures celebrated their 21st Anniversary with the Very Revd Jeffrey John, Dean of St Albans, speaking on ‘Real Bible Study’ to an audience of 130 people.
The series’ curator, David Beadle, has also run special series of Heritage Lectures here, featuring the history of music and liturgy, architecture and craftsmanship at St Michael’s as part of our HLF Organ Project.
Lectures are given by prominent academics and experts from wide-ranging disciplines, beliefs and backgrounds. Read more about some of our past lecturers featured in the gallery below.
