Welcome to St Michael and All Angels

Welcome to St Michael’s Mount Dinham – this beautiful church was consecrated to the Glory of God on 29 September 1868.

Our 150th Anniversary Celebrations start this September with 4 Heritage Open Days, a Historical Lecture and a special Michaelmas Procession, Mass & Supper  – if you would like food & drink after the Service on Sat 29th Sept, please download & return this Invitation Letter and return with payment by Sun 9th Sept. We hope you can visit, support and worship with us this Sesquicentenary Year.

We offer traditional Services, fine music and good fellowship – our main worship is Sunday Mass at 11am, with an excellent choir. Regular Services are listed here and Events for August and beyond are found here. Here is our Parish Magazine and our Music List.  Look around our beautiful church in words and pictures at Floorplan.

Prebendary Nigel Guthrie is our Vicar here & at St David’s Church. We pray for him as he seeks to lead and support the diverse people and groups who find a spiritual home at St Michael’s. Fr Christopher Durrant and Rev Alison Whiting are Curates, and Readers Bill Pattinson & Howard Friend complete our licensed team.

The running costs of St Michael’s Church – Common Fund to the Diocese, utilities, insurance, maintenance etc. – are about £100 per day! Donations small or large, one-off or regular, will be most gratefully received by the treasurer; one method is via our MyDonate facility.

We are a diverse group of people united in celebrating the life & teaching of Jesus through the rhythm of the Christian year. We value familiar words on which one can lay one’s own thoughts & prayers; traditional music & hymns, vestments, incense & ritual hallowed by time; a short sermon to help us think, not tell us what to think; Communion in the bread & wine of Christ; and lively fellowship afterwards.

Come & enjoy traditional liturgy, fine music and good fellowship with us here. We are a friendly, welcoming, diversity-affirming church in the Anglo-Catholic tradition.

Accessibility. We welcome wheelchair users; as a Listed Victorian building we currently deploy a temporary ramp at the West Doors to enable access.

Lectures & ConcertsSt Michael’s Lectures for the rest of the year are now set. We look forward to Richard Parker (Architectural Historian and Chapel Warden) regaling us with his views on The Roots of Religion at Mount Dinham on Wed 26 Sept at 7.30pm. All welcome.  To arrange a Concert or other event, please contact us.

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. Nick Dixon’s 24-page booklet on the History of our Peregrine Falcons, with excellent photos is available for £6 from Nick’s Website.

At St Mike’s the “& All Angels” reminds us that God loves us all as his children, wherever we are on the pilgrimage of life. Come and see if this beautiful and eclectic church is a place where you could contribute and grow.  We would love to welcome you.

“We seek to know God’s presence in the world through worship, prayer and meditation;  we rejoice in the richness of the Christian heritage in word, music and ritual;   we are called to be an outgoing, welcoming and friendly community of faith and service.”

St Michael’s Church is grateful to have fixed long-standing guttering problems through a grant of £78,800 from the Listed Places of Worship Roof Repair Fund; the work carried out by Williams & Burrows was completed in 2016. We thank Allchurches Trust for a contribution of £2000 and Exeter Historic Buildings Trust for their £3000 donation.

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 development of St Michael’s heritage and music. Likewise, the late Canon John Thurmer, part of whose legacy is the Glossary exploring the rich vocabulary of the Church. May they rest in peace and rise in glory.
