Welcome to St Michael and All Angels

Our Peregrines come to the fore from March to June, with the nest box camera online on the Peregrine Falcons page. With 4 eggs being incubated, we expect the “due date” for hatching to be around 29-30 April.

We are a friendly, welcoming church in the Anglo-Catholic tradition. Mass is sung here on Sundays at 10.45am, with an excellent choir and new pipe organ. We hope you enjoy browsing these pages and find something to inspire you. Click on the scrolling images above for quick links to key pages.

See Events for future activities, plus the 10 most recent by category, our Blog for summaries and commentary, and Twitter for latest News.

See Worship for regular service times. The music list for April through June is in preparation, and the April edition of the Parish Magazine is online. You can look round our beautiful church in words and pictures using Floorplan.

Recitals & Lectures – our monthly Friday Evening Recitals continue with a classical guitar Recital on May 8th, and culminate in a lunch, workshop & concert with the world-renowned vocal octet Voces 8 on June 19th.  Your organisation could also sponsor a music recital at St Michael’s.  The monthly St Michael’s Lectures continue on Wednesday 29 April with Dr David Tollerton discussing the Bible and the State of Israel.

St Michael’s Music Team is looking for an Assistant Director of Music and the choir warmly welcomes singers in all voice parts.

This website is dedicated to the memory of the Revd Dr John Hughes, former Curate of this parish and Dean of Jesus College Cambridge. John’s enthusiasm, encouragement and vision inspired the development St Michael’s heritage and music during his Curacy and beyond.

The Requiem Funeral Mass for Canon John Alfred Thurmer took place at St Michael’s on Monday 9th February 2015. Thank you to all who attended. Canon John was well loved by all and will be sorely missed.

May they rest in peace and rise in glory.
