The Very Revd Bob Wilkes City RectorThank you for visiting our web site. As a Christian Church in Oxford city centre, a warm welcome is at the heart of what we want to offer to all who come by either on Cornmarket Street or online.

St Michael’s is an ancient place. Our Saxon Tower is the oldest structure in this city of many old buildings. As I say my prayers here, I often think of the faithful who have come to this Church for over a thousand years. Today, we continue to live as a community of faith, valuing the heritage and tradition which we inherit and offering ourselves in the service of the modern city.

I think of St Michael’s as a Christian community, with a civic calling and a city centre opportunity. St Michael’s is the City Church and I have the privilege of being the City Rector for the Council. Our Church is on the busiest walkway in this much visited city. We open our doors every day to invite in those who would benefit from a few moments of reflection and prayer. The hospitality of Christ – that is our core value.
