Community Endorsements

Endorsing Organizations

… from the music community

"St Michael and All Angels is the Oxford Studio Orchestra's preferred venue. The size and acoustic are good for our concerts and the church staff are always very helpful. An improvement in the facilities for ticket sales and for interval refreshments would be most welcome."

Bill Manville, Secretary
Oxford Studio Orchestra

"As concert manager for the Summertown Choral Society, I know that our 125 members delight in singing at St Michael's, both for its acoustic and its ambience. It is therefore with enthusiasm that, on behalf of the Society, I endorse the Threshold Project which will further enhance the attractions of the venue."

Sir Clive Booth

The Choir of New College has made numerous recordings in the Church of St Michael's, Summertown. Everybody involved appreciated its balanced and inviting acoustic, and surprisingly quiet ambiance. An enhancement of the church's amenities would certainly place the building on a national level of excellence for recording projects."

Edward Higginbottom
Emeritus Professor of Choral Music
University of Oxford

"Signum Records has been recording at St Michael & All Angels, Summertown for many years. It is a wonderful recording space. We have recorded solo piano, string quartets, singers, vocal ensembles and choirs there and the results are tremendous."

Steve Long, Signum Records

… from the therapeutic community

"The Oxford and district branch of the Multiple Sclerosis Society fully supports the St Michael's Threshold Project, and our members look forward to making full use of what promises to be an excellent addition to the North Oxford community."

John Chipperfield, Chairman

"Oxfordshire Mind wishes the Threshold Project well as it seeks funding to develop a therapeutic space in the heart of Summertown. We feel this new resource will enhance community facilities in the area and provide a new and accessible social space for people to get the help they need on a one to one, group or peer support basis, from a range of key support agencies."

David Agnew, Head of Community Services
Oxfordshire Mind

"OXPIP wishes St Michael's every success in their efforts to offer community space and support for therapeutic services"

Adrian Sell, Executive Director
Oxford Parent Infant Project

"Age UK Oxfordshire is delighted to endorse the St Michael's Threshold Project with its vision to provide space for local community needs. The plans for a welcoming and hospitable new community space at St Michael's will enable us to work in partnership with St Michael’s as we look to provide an increased range of opportunities within the North Oxford area."

Ruth Swift, Head of Area
Age UK Oxfordshire
