St Michael & All Angels Church, Bassett Avenue, was consecrated in 1911. It has a beautiful rood screen within and striking stained glass windows of the Archangel Michael. 

The worship at St Michael's is joyful and dignified within a broad catholic tradition, offering superb liturgy, silence and the beauty of music as key components of its spirituality. We are immensely proud of our strong choral tradition − St Michael’s has a reputation for having one of the finest church choirs in Hampshire.

Our main Sunday Eucharist is at 10am, with an 'All Age’ Eucharist on the 1st Sunday of the month, and Choral Eucharist on the 4th Sunday. Choral Evensong is sung at 6.30pm on the 2nd and 4th Sundays, with a Taize service on the 3rd Sunday. 

Whilst most of the services are quite traditional, the atmosphere at St Michael’s is friendly and relaxed, and we extend an especially warm welcome to visitors, young families and students from the nearby University of Southampton.
