Welcome to St Michael and All Angels

Sunday 25th January.  It is with great sadness that we announce the passing this morning of our beloved Canon John Alfred Thurmer. Canon John was well loved by all and will be sorely missed. Vespers of the Dead were sung at 6pm on Tuesday 27th January at St Michael’s.  May he rest in peace and rise in glory.

Requiem Funeral for Canon John will take place at St Michael’s at 2.30pm on Monday 9th February, with refreshments and time for conversation afterwards at the church.  All welcome.

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.
