Church of England Diocese of Oxford Summertown

St Michael & All Angels, Summertown

Welcome to St Michael and All Angels in Summertown.  We are the Anglican Parish Church for the Summertown district of north Oxford.

We are delighted that we are back in church and have our full range of services.  We are still sitting socially distanced and wearing masks in  church.  We are enjoying singing again but this is one hymn after the blessing at the end of the 10am service so it is possible to leave if you would feel safer not being in the building while we are singing.

At a time when many people, in this time of pandemic and natural disasters, are asking questions about the meaning of life, we would warmly welcome you to join us for worship at St Michael’s, to find space for reflection and prayer, and together to consider the issues, personal and public, that face us today. We are an inclusive church in the liberal catholic tradition and welcome people of all ages from all walks of life. We strive to make our worship relevant, challenging and dignified, and to reflect God’s love for our world. Children are very much part of our church life and are welcome at all services. Do join us one Sunday!

Located north of the university-dominated city centre, St Michael’s is situated in Lonsdale Road (off the Banbury Road, opposite the Radio Oxford building).


The parish of St Michael & All Angels, Summertown, is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Oxford’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs.

If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Service.
