St Michael's church stands high above the town of Minehead. Illuminated at night, it still guides people home - as it did mariners in centuries past. It is our parish church and the focus for major festival celebrations. We use it in conjunction with our two other churches - St Andrew's in the town centre, and St Peter's on the harbour - to serve our congregation with a broad menu of Anglican worship, from high ceremonial to spirit-led praise and all-age activity services.
St Michael's is a 14th century building with a 15th century tower. It boasts a fine rood screen and a ten-bell peal.
Re-ordered by the Victorians, and again in the 1970s, it is an atmospheric building which invites one to be still and know God's presence.
Owing to the current situation the church is not open apart from services.
