  • 6.30pm Contemplative Half-hour. A service with short prayers, a Bible reading and about 20 minutes of silent prayer. The service is held in the Lady Chapel and there are candles and icons. Please enter through the South Door.

For those attending in person …

Many of the questions being asked around the return to church worship are answered on this Covid-19 leaflet.

There will be a plate for your offering (if you don't already give regularly by other means).


St Michael & All Angels, Summertown continues to be open for private prayer.

You are welcome to use the space to pray in silence, to light a candle, to reflect upon these strange times. If you need further pastoral assistance, please contact Gavin Knight, the vicar. Leaflets will be available with prayers and contact information. Welcomers will be on site to make your visit safe and contained.

The church will be open at the following times:

  • Monday - Wednesday: 10am - 12noon.

Please enter the church via the south door. A toilet will be available if required.

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!
