Welcome to St Michael and All Angels

Welcome or welcome back! Our Red Letter Day this month is Michaelmas, Thurs 29th September at 7pm (please note earlier start) with Festal Sung Mass at which Fr Christopher Durrant will celebrate the Eucharist for the first time – all welcome, please support. With Fr Christopher’s Ordination at St David’s Church at 9.30am on Sunday 25th Sept, there will be NO 10.45am Mass at St Michael’s that day; there will be a Said Mass at 5pm.

It’s a good time to get back to Church at St Michael’s as we prepare for Heritage Open Days, our Curate’s Ordination and the Feast of Michaelmas.  As congregation, servers or choir, share with us the Christian journey through Harvest, Remembrance-tide and Advent to the joy of Christmas. With a varied new Music List of weekly Masses & Motets, the Choir would welcome new singers, and especially Bass & Soprano Choral Scholars.

Whether resident or visitor, you are most welcome to enjoy traditional liturgy, fine music and good fellowship with us here at St Michael’s, Mount Dinham, in Exeter. We are a friendly, welcoming, diversity affirming church in the Anglo-Catholic tradition. Sunday Mass is sung at 10.45am, with an excellent choir and fine pipe organ.

We are a diverse group of people united in celebrating the life and teaching of Jesus through the rhythm of the Christian year. We value familiar words on which you can lay your own thoughts and prayers; proper music & hymns, with vestments, incense & ritual hallowed by time; a short sermon to help you think, not tell you what to think; Communion in the bread and wine of Christ; and informal fellowship afterwards. All are welcome.

At “St Mike’s”, the “and All Angels” remind us that God loves us all as his children, wherever we are on the pilgrimage of life. Come and see if this beautiful and eclectic church is a place where you could contribute and grow.  We would love to welcome you.

Accessibility.  We welcome wheelchair users, but as a Listed Victorian building we currently need to deploy a temporary ramp to enable access.

We hope you enjoy exploring this website; the scrolling images above link to some key pages. Click Worship for regular service times,  Events for future activities (plus 10 most recent ones too!), our Blog for summaries and commentary, and Twitter for latest News. The new Parish Magazine is online, with a Questionnaire as we seek to refresh its content & style. Look around our beautiful church in words and pictures using Floorplan or browse 2000 years of “local” Christianity with our History Timeline. Our Peregrine Falcon chicks have fledged, so the camera is off-line.

Lectures & Concerts -  The St Michael’s Lectures continue on Wednesday 28th September at 7.30pm with Professor David Horrell, from University of Exeter Department of Theology & Religion, talking about “Ethnicity, Race and Religion in early Christian and Jewish Texts and Modern Biblical Scholarship.”  Please support any forthcoming Concerts. To arrange a Concert or other event, please contact us.

“ We seek to know God’s presence in the world through worship, prayer and meditation;
we rejoice in the richness of the Christian heritage in word, music and ritual;
we are called to be an outgoing, welcoming and friendly community of faith and service.”

St Michael’s Church is grateful to have been given the chance to fix its long-standing guttering problems through a grant of £78,000 from the Listed Places of Worship Roof Repair Scheme; please pray that we can secure the necessary additional £10,000 or so to complete this. We are grateful to the Allchurches Trust for a contribution of £2000 and to Exeter Historic Buildings Trust for the offer of a donation.

This website also honours the memory of the Revd Dr John Hughes, former Curate of this parish and Dean of Jesus College, Cambridge. whose enthusiasm, encouragement and vision inspired the development of St Michael’s heritage and music. Likewise, the late Canon John Thurmer, part of whose legacy is the Glossary exploring the rich vocabulary of the Church. May they rest in peace and rise in glory.

Please contact us with ideas, feedback, or to enquire about hiring the Church.
