SMNG Online


Welcome to St Michael at the North Gate Online. On this page you can find a range of information and links to online resources, which we hope will be of help and support to you, particularly during this time of lockdown.

In line with Government guidance, our building is currently closed. But the church is as alive as ever. May we be people of patience, kindness, courage, learning and prayer in these times.

Would you like to talk to someone? Please email me on

Phone messages left on the main office number (01865 240940) will also be picked up remotely.

We are at the heart of Oxford, and have served our city and nation for a thousand years. As a Christian community, we want to express the welcome of Christ. We believe that his love can transform us, and bring hope, courage and purpose to all that we do.

We hope you enjoy exploring our website, whether you are in Oxford or elsewhere please be in touch if you wish.

With very best wishes

Rev Anthony Buckley

Diocese of Oxford and Church of England

The Diocese of Oxford is providing a range of streamed services, and Bishop Steven writes:

The Lord our Shepherd with us through this crisis giving rest to the weary, comfort to the bereaved and guidance to the perplexed. We are asking everyone across the whole diocese, every disciple of Christ, to pause at 11 am each day if your work permits and say Psalm 23 and the Lord’s Prayer, (with Pope Francis and our Archbishops).

The Church of England nationally is providing numerous resources, too!
