We hope you enjoy exploring this website. Here is this month’s parish magazine, the current music list, forthcoming Lectures and a selection of recordings of the choir.

Services are led by the Vicar of the Parish of St David with St Michael & All Angels, Prebendary Nigel Guthrie, with Fr Dominic Cyrus and The Venerable David Gunn-Johnson.

Safeguarding ~ The community of St Michael’s with the PCC is committed to the support, nurture, protection and safeguarding of all, especially the young and the vulnerable. Please see our contact page for more information. 

Accessibility ~ Our Listed Victorian building is accessible to wheelchair users via quickly deployable ramps.

The webcam positioned on our famous Peregrine Falcons which nest within the spire is live from mid-February to June each year. Our adult female Peregrine is needing a new mate this Spring. Having taught last year’s two fledglings to fly and hunt, the old male disappeared last Autumn. 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. We also honour the lasting memory of Canon John Thurmer, former Priest of this church, Chaplain of the University of Exeter and Canon of Exeter Cathedral, whose legacy is immeasurable. His input to this website includes the Glossary, which explores the rich vocabulary of this Church. May they rest in peace and rise in glory.

Donations ~ All gifts and donations in support of the upkeep of the church and its music are gratefully received. Donations of any size can be made easily and safely online via the myDonate button to the right, on this page (valid till end June 2019).
