Church & Community

History

Sketch of church

Fundraising began in 1904 to build a new church for Summertown, to replace St John's (1833) which had become too small for the regular congregation, and in 1908 work on todays St Michael's was begun.

1,000 copies of the Order of Service were printed for the ceremony on 11 February 1909 at which the foundation stone was laid by the Countess of Jersey.

Work on the building was expected to be finished by Michaelmas that year, which indeed it was, but only after the decision was taken to cut short the nave and lay a temporary west wall.

The consecration of St Michael's, commemorated by two small lights in the East window, took place on 29 September 1909.

Architect: A Mardon Mowbray
Builders: Wooldridge & Simpson
Site donated by Alderman Francis Twining
