St. Michael’s Church was organized in 1718 by laypersons in the town of Bristol and continued its early growth with the help of clergy sent by the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts, a missionary society in London.We are one of the 4 original colonial Anglican parishes in RI, which were also the incorporators of The Diocese of RI in 1790.St. Michael’s has occupied the corner of Hope & Church Streets since 1720, and we now worship in the fourth building on this site that was completed in1861. Since its start, St. Michael’s has had 16 rectors.The history of this parish is the story of the lives of its people united in faith & prayer.
Mission St. Michael's Church's mission is to embody the Good News of Jesus Christ through our worship, education, outreach and pastoral care, and in his name to serve, to heal, to reconcile and to liberate.
