The church is named after Archangel St Michael who is the patron saint of grocers, mariners, paratroopers, police, and sickness.
Among the church groups is a Guild of St Raphael branch. The Guild's concern is with healing in its widest sense - the healing of all creation, individuals, society, the environment. It is common in Guild parishes for the Sunday nearest to St Raphael’s Day, 24th October, to be given over to the theme of healing.
