Welcome to St Michael and All Angels

The community of St Michael’s extends a very warm welcome for worship and fellowship and to all visitors.

St Michael’s offers beautiful and traditional Services open to everybody:

Sung Mass on Sundays at 11am;

Evensong & Benediction on the 1st Sunday of the month at 6pm;

Vespers (Plainchant and Meditation) on Tuesdays and Thursday at 6pm.

Prebendary Nigel Guthrie is our Vicar here and also at St David’s Church Exeter. Fr. Christopher Durrant and the Revd. Alison Whiting are our Curates. Please browse this website for more information on our EventsParish MagazineBlog and the Music List. Click here to listen to the choir.

The Nest Box Camera on the Peregrine Falcons nesting in the spire will resume online during March. Eggs are usually laid towards the end of March, often coinciding with the Spring Equinox. Nick Dixon’s 24-page illustrated booklet on the History of the Peregrine Falcons at St Michael’s, is available from his website.

We honour the lasting memory of the Revd. Dr John Hughes, former Curate of this parish and Dean of Jesus College, Cambridge, whose enthusiasm, encouragement, vision and love inspired ours and many other communities through the development of theology, heritage, music and the arts. The John Hughes Arts Festival now in its third year takes place this month at Jesus College in Cambridge. Likewise, we honour the lasting memory of the late Canon John Thurmer, former Priest of this church and Canon of Exeter Cathedral, and whose legacy is immeasurable. His input to this website includes the Glossary, which explores the rich vocabulary of the Church, and also the Constuitudinary. May they rest in peace and rise in glory.

The PCC has committed the St Michael’s community to the support, nurture, protection and safeguarding of all, especially the young and the vulnerable.
