About Us

St Michael’s is the parish church of Heavitree. The present building is mainly Victorian, but the earliest reference to a church there is in 1156 - so there has been a church on the site for at least 1000 years.

Although the church is built on the top of a hill, and can be seen from a long way away, the buildings in Fore Street means that the church is not visible from the main road.

St Michael’s has an Anglo-Catholic style of worship, and Mass is celebrated in one of the churches in the team every day. The clergy meet for Morning and Evening Prayer daily to which all people are welcome.

We have a variety of services on Sundays:

8am which is a said Eucharist

10.30am Parish Mass – a sung service with good music and traditional ceremony. There is a Sunday school for children during the service. Refreshments are served afterwards where you will have a warm welcome.

Messy Church

Once a month, on the first Sunday of the month we have Messy Church. This begins with breakfast at 8.45am, followed by craft activities, story-telling and informal worship. Ideal for children and their families you will receive a warm welcome.
