The Week Ahead

The Church is closed

The Church is CLOSED until further notice

[24 March 2020] Following the Prime Minister's announcement yesterday evening, all churches are to close until further notice. This means that we will not be able to light candles, say prayers or even broadcast the Sunday Eucharist.

We ask you to pray for God's blessing upon this season of the church's life, that we will resume the normal pattern of daily life stronger in faith, more active in discipleship and more joyful in our relationships. Please pray for the Parish of Summertown, its church St Michael's, and for those who live and work in this place. Please also pray for God's enterprising Spirit to enlighten all of us with ways to live more prayerfully and authentically as disciples of Christ.

COVID-19 UPDATE

Health advice for our parishioners — Advice from Public Health England

Public Health England recommends that you should take usual infection prevention precautions including:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available. This is particularly important after taking public transport.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • If you feel unwell, stay at home, do not attend work or school.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in the home and work environment.

Welcome to St Michael & All Angels'

Welcome

You are very welcome to our website and to our inclusive and growing church family! Our community of faith is more complete because of your presence.

St Michael & All Angels' church is situated in leafy north Oxford, just off the Banbury Road, serving the parish of Summertown, Cutteslowe and Waterways.

The church forms a beautiful sacred space, surrounded by gardens.

We are a family of faith, inclusive and outward-looking, seeking to make a difference to the world that we are rooted in.

St Michael and All Angels Church Summertown


Our worship is contemporary in tone, yet seeking to celebrate the rich traditions of our faith.

The church is dedicated to a "threshold ministry" - inviting the wider community to enter into the sacred space of the building and encouraging one another to serve in the community beyond the church walls.

We have a particular pastoral concern for nurturing the faith of children and young families. We believe that God laughs and plays!
