History

People have been worshipping in Brookenby for many years even before it got its current name.  Before it was the former RAF base of Binbrook and Brookenby was the RAF houses were built to house the crews and their families . The Church as it is now situated has been lovingly restored from the former Sgts Mess. Two people who had a lot of input into the work were Margaret and John Toyne who were readers of the Walesby Group who have sadly left for pastures new. Margaret worked hard  fund raising for the floor and chairs, and John put in many hours of hard labour using his knowledge of building work to make St Michaels what it is today; a vibrant mission church.
