Welcome to St Michael and All Angels

~ The community of St Michael’s extends a very warm welcome to everyone ~

St Michael’s offers beautiful services in the Anglo-Catholic tradition, which are open to all.

Sung Mass each Sunday is at 11am; Evensong & Benediction on the 1st Sunday of the month is at 6pm; Vespers (plainchant and meditation) is on Tuesdays and Thursday at 6pm. Matins & Low Mass is on Wednesdays at 9.30/10am.

Please browse this website for Events in November, the current Lectures Series, to read the current Parish Magazine and Music List, and to listen to the choir.

Services are led by the Vicar of the Parish, Prebendary Nigel Guthrie, with Fr Dominic Cyrus, the Venerable David Gunn-Johnson and the Curate of the Parish, Revd. Alison Whiting.

The webcam positioned on our famous Peregrine Falcons which nest within the spire is live from February to June. Our adult pair are teaching this year’s two fledglings to fly and hunt. 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.

SafeguardingThe community of St Michael’s community 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.
