Welcome to St Michael and All Angels

Share with us in the Festivals of God’s Holy Church – Ascension, Pentecost, Trinity and Corpus Christi. 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. 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, 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 this website and find things to inspire you. Click on the scrolling images above for quick links to key pages.

The Music List for March to May, and the Parish Magazine are online. Look around our beautiful church in words and pictures using Floorplan and browse 2000 years of “local” Christianity with our History Timeline. Our Peregrine Falcon camera is now on and chicks have hatched.

Lectures & Concerts -  Please support the St Michael’s Lectures Memorial to Canon Thurmer on Friday 27 May at 7.30pm, when we welcome Professor Nichalas Orme for “A Brief History of England’s Cathedrals“. We also have Concerts on Friday 13 May, Clarinet Quartet, and Friday 20 May, Exeter College Choral Society.  To arrange a Concert or other event, please contact us.

“ 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 when work begins after Peregrine fledging.

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.
