Welcome to St Michael & All Angels'


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.

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!

How to be a welcoming church.
