St Michaels and All Angels has a new website!

St Michael and All Angels C of E church in Esh might date from 1283, but a new website puts it firmly in the twenty-first century! http://www.stmichaelandallangelsesh.btck.co.uk provides details of service times, baptisms, weddings and funerals, the Parochial Church Council, and how to get involved with the Friends of the Church initiative, as well as much more! 

Temple Chevallier, 1794-1873
St Michael's has a rich history: King Edward I attended Mass there on 10th September 1306, and the celebrated astronomer, scientist, mathematician and theologian and clergyman, Temple Chevallier,
famous for his work on sunspots, as well as translating the works of several Church Fathers. Chevallier is buried in the churchyard, which is also the site of a Commonwealth War Grave, that of 552228 Trooper William Francis Leopold Scott, who died in 1940 whilst serving with the Royal Armoured Corps. All are welcome at the church: check out their website for details of how to visit, worship, and get involved!
