Welcome to St Michael and All Angels

Welcome to St Michael’s Mount Dinham – our main worship is Sunday Mass at 10.45am with an excellent choir and varied Music List. 

Regular Services are listed here   and Events throughout Lent and beyond may be found here  .

A Prayer for use during the Interregnum/Vacancy in the Parish may be found here  .

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. Come & enjoy traditional liturgy, fine music and good fellowship with us here. We are a friendly, welcoming, diversity-affirming church in the Anglo-Catholic tradition.

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

Lectures & Concerts -  In place of the St Michael’s Lectures in March & April, on Wednesdays in Lent there will be Reading Group.   Please support Exeter College Choral Society Concert on Friday 17 March.  To arrange a Concert or other event, please contact us.

Prebendary Alastair Wheeler & Fr Christopher Durrant have prepared this Brochure for a parish pilgrimage to the Holy Land after Easter 2018, with a Preliminary Meeting on Mon 20 Mar at 7.30pm at St David’s Church.  For those looking to start a Vocational Spiritual Journey, South West Ministry Training Course are advertising this opportunity.

At St Mike’s the “& All Angels” reminds 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.

“ 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 fixed long-standing guttering problems through a grant of £78,800 from the Listed Places of Worship Roof Repair Fund; the work carried out by Williams & Burrows is complete. We thank Allchurches Trust for a contribution of £2000 and Exeter Historic Buildings Trust for their £3000 donation.

We honour 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.
