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.

Our building is open every day, and you are very welcome to come in for prayer and reflection or to attend any of our services. You can find details here. You can also join us for some services online, on our You Tube channel. We know many people are unable or unwilling to come to church as they did before, and we hope that our streamed services will also offer comfort to all those in this position. You can find a number of our past services and online resources on this page. Whether at home or in the building, our church is as alive as ever. May we be people of patience, kindness, courage, learning and prayer in these times.

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
