Welcome to St Michael and All Angels

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. The first image – a beautiful landscape of St Michael’s – has been shared with us by Jonathan Neale Photography.
See Worship for regular service times, view the music list up until Christmas, and take a look around our beautiful church in words and pictures using Floorplan. November edition of Parish Magazine now available includes a fascinating article on Cyril Valpy French, Vicar of the Parish 1894-1914.

Nick Dixon and our resident Peregrine Falcons at St Michael’s were featured on The One Show, BBC ONE, on Tuesday 14 October. Five minutes of fame for our beautiful Peregrine Falcons in a wonderful piece on cooperative protective behaviour during fledging time. On iPlayer until mid-November, see the “One Show” link above; it starts at 9 minutes 30 seconds.

We are currently seeking applicants to our Music Scholarships Scheme for an Assistant Director of Music and a Choral Scholar. The choir also welcomes applicants for singers in all voice parts.

This new website will develop further and you can help shape how these pages evolve by contacting us with your ideas and feedback.

The 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.
