The Messenger

The Messenger magazine is produced by St Michael’s church, West Hill. You can browse the current magazine, or download a copy, further down this page.


The Messenger is delivered, free of charge, by a team of volunteers to every home in West Hill, over 900 households. If you live in West Hill and do not receive a copy, please let us know straight away, via the form on the Contacts page.  With the number of new houses being built in the area, it is possible that we might have missed you.

Equally, if you are prepared to help as a distributor, please let us know. The village is divided into a large number of zones so each distributor only has to visit part of a street or a couple of local closes. The more help we have, the smaller each round will be.
