Welcome to St Michael and All Angels

•  This beautiful church was consecrated to the Glory of God at Michaelmas, 29 September 1868  •   We welcome you to celebrate and worship with us this Sesquicentenary Year.

Our 150th Anniversary Celebrations this September included four Heritage Open Days, a Historical Lecture and Peregrine Talk. We also enjoyed a very special Michaelmas Procession, Mass  on Saturday 29th September and Solemn High Mass on the Sunday.

St Michael’s offers beautiful and traditional services. Join us for Sung Mass on Sundays at 11am, Vespers (Plainchant and meditation) on Tuesdays and Thursday at 6pm. Find out more about Services and EventsParish MagazineBlog and the Music List. Click here to listen to the choir.

Please support the John Hughes Memorial Lecture on Wednesday 24th October at 7.30pm when our highly-regarded speaker, Prof Alison Milbank, will ask “Does the Parish have a future?”

All gifts and donations in support of the upkeep of the church are gratefully received. Donations of any size can be made easily and safely online via the mydonate button to the right, on this page. Prebendary Nigel Guthrie is our Vicar here and also at St David’s Church. Fr. Christopher Durrant and the Revd. Alison Whiting are our Curates.

Our Peregrine Falcons laid 3 eggs in Holy Week, 2 female chicks hatched early in May and have successfully fledged, so the Camera is now off until next spring. Nick Dixon’s 24-page booklet on the History of our Peregrine Falcons, with excellent photos is available from his website.

We honour 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 recent development of St Michael’s heritage and music. Likewise, the late Canon John Thurmer, whose legacy is immeasurable and includes the Glossary compiled for this website, which explores the rich vocabulary of the Church, and also the Constuitudinary. May they rest in peace and rise in glory.
