Welcome to St Michael and All Angels

News! St Michael’s, Mount Dinham, is a Pokestop in the #PokemonGO game. So please visit us, and if we’re open come in and have a look around. We have some interesting characters of our own.

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 this Summer. 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 plenty of 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”, it’s good to have 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.

We hope you enjoy exploring this website; the scrolling images above link to key pages. Or 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 Music List for June to August, and the Parish Magazine are online. 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 will be switched off soon.

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.”  There is no Lecture in August.  Please support our forthcoming Concert; on Wednesday 10th August at 7.30pm we welcome Olesya Rostovskaya to give a special Theremin Recital – a classical electronic instrument. To arrange a Concert or other event, please contact us.

Accessibility.  We welcome wheelchair users, but as a Victorian Listed building currently deploy a temporary ramp for access.

“ 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 make this a reality. 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.
