St. Michael’s Church is an ancient building of local stone dating back to Norman times. It is situated on the A45 on the western edge of Northampton and is surrounded by beautiful parkland. The Friends of St Michael’s Church are volunteers who raise money to restore and enhance the building.
Since 1980 the Church has been ‘closed’ but as the population of Upton grows the Church is increasingly being brought back into community use. The fabric of the Church is maintained by the Churches Conservation Trust, and the Churchyard has been maintained by voluntary efforts of the Friends and others. Each year we enjoy seasonal services including the wonderful Carols by Candlelight just before Christmas.
If you would like to know more about the church or our hopes to build an ecumenical worshipping community at St Michael's, please contact Parish Office firstname.lastname@example.org or Friends of St Michael’s Church, c/o Upton Lodge Farm, Weedon Road, Northampton NN5 4UU.
