Welcome to St Michael and All Angels

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

COVID-19 PANDEMIC In light of public health advice and following direction from the Church of England in this extraordinary time; all public worship is suspended and the church building must remain closed. Up to date advice & news from Exeter Diocese is available from this link. We are also rescheduling all events and activities that normally take place at St Michael’s, although the events pages are still up within this website, now with linked recordings and readings.

+ + In the meantime, our life of prayer and worship continues + +

We are now offering services and reflections online, with Fr Nigel Guthrie and some of the other facilitators from the community of St Michael’s, including recordings of the choir. This is our way of staying in touch and standing with you over the coming weeks.

Please do join us on the Friends of St. Michael’s Facebook group where the Angelus and Prayer Book Matins will be live streamed from the Vicarage at 9:00am every Wednesday morning. The evening service of sung Vespers can be heard here, which is normally sung by members of the choir at 6:00pm.

Other recorded services will be shared too throughout Holy Week and beyond, including a rare recording of  the Good Friday Tenebrae service with Fr Dr John Hughes from 2008.

All are welcome to sign up to receive the newsletter and “Pew Sheet” by email which includes links to music and other notices, from virtualsaintmichaels@gmail.com

Our nature and wildlife continues to thrive. St Michael’s famous Peregrine Falcons can be observed via the webcam positioned on their nest within the spire.  Our adult female Peregrine has just laid an egg on Wednesday, to coincide with the Passover full moon. Exeter Peregrine Group’s Flickr gallery holds amazing and unique images of these incredible birds.

In this extraordinary time we feel there are many benefits to being in nature and spending time in sacred places, to heal feelings of isolation and despair, to celebrate our connection and purpose, and for this reason we look forward to gathering with you one day very soon.

We send our very best wishes to you all – may you stay grounded and healthy, and may we all navigate the challenges of this time with grace and love.
