July/August 2017 at St Michael’s

Sung Masses and monthly Evensongs continue over the Summer. Tuesday & Thursday Vespers cease during August. Wednesday Low Mass at 10am continues throughout. We hope you can join us in worship, prayer and fellowship.
We have a Lecture & a Concert in July; please check our website/twitter for any updates.

As we reach the end of the University year, we say thanks to Ouseley Scholar Miranda, Scholar Saffron, Michael who goes to SOAS and Lina moving to Bristol, for all they have given to us, and wish them well.

Erika will be auditioning for new Choral Scholars in September; both University students and 16-18 year olds who want experience before applying for University Scholarships are welcome. If you know someone who may be interested, contact Erika.
