Welcome to St Michael and All Angels

Welcome to St Michael’s Mount Dinham – Come with us on our journey through the Winter Seasons of Advent, Christmas & Epiphany, sharing the faith, hope & love of the Shepherds, the Magi and Mary & Joseph as we greet the Christchild, Jesus, Emmanuel, God with us.

We offer traditional Services, fine music and good fellowship. Our main worship is Sunday Mass at 10.45am with an excellent choir. Regular Services are listed here and Events for December and beyond are found here. Here is our Parish Magazine and our new Music List.

Good News! We are looking forward to Rev Prebendary Nigel Guthrie joining the Parish as our new Vicar. Nigel has been Rector of Crediton Parish Church since 2002.  Tuesday 16th January 2018 at 7.30pm is the date for the Institution and Induction Service at St David’s Church with Bishop Sarah; please keep this date free in your diary. Our thanks to all the Clergy who have helped Fr Christopher & the Wardens keep services going during 2017. Thank you for using this Prayer with us.

The running costs of St Michael’s Church – Common Fund to the Diocese, utilities, insurance, music etc. – amount to about £100 per day! Donations small or large, one-off or regular would be most gratefully received; one method is our MyDonate facility.

We are a diverse group of people united in celebrating the life & teaching of Jesus through the rhythm of the Christian year. We value familiar words on which you can lay your own thoughts & prayers; traditional music & hymns, with vestments, incense & ritual hallowed by time; a short sermon to help us think, not tell us what to think; Communion in the bread & wine of Christ; and lively 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 – the St Michael’s Lectures  continue on Wednesday 31st November at 7.30pm, and during Lent Oliver Nicholson will lead a Wednesday Reading Group on the Life of St Antony.  Please also support the Concert by Exeter Chorale at 4.30pm on Saturday 9th December.  To arrange a Concert or other event, please contact us.

Nick Dixon has produced a 24-page booklet on the History of our Peregrine Falcons, with excellent photos – available by post for £6 from Nick’s Website.

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 was complete in 2016. 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.
