St. Michael Shelf with
St. Aidan Buttershaw 

We are shaped by Jesus to be his disciples starting from our communities - Shelf and Buttershaw 

Welcome to St Michael’s, & St Aidan’s.

We have two Church of England worship centres in this parish, St Michael’s in Shelf and St Aidan’s in Buttershaw. Our parish has approximately 22,000 people living in a number of distinct areas, Shelf, Buttershaw, Woodside and Clayton Heights.


Our dedicated team of volunteers makes St Michael’s & St Aidan’s what it is. We are Jesus Shaped with a heart for our communities.


We meet in person each Sunday – at 10.15 Am for a common worship Service. The first Sunday of the month is an all-age service, and we have kids' ministries alongside our services. Most of our Sunday Morning worship is Holy Communion Services, apart from the first Sunday of each, which is the usual service of the word. All are welcome. Our Sunday evening services – Church Live, are informal services with modern songs. On each second Sunday You can also catch up with what we do join in our various social media. It'll be great to see you.
