St Michael and All Angels serves a large and diverse parish. This includes the Villages
just north of High Wycombe: Hughenden Valley, Naphill and Walters Ash, North Dean,
Bryants Bottom and Cryers Hill. We also take in a part of Great Kingshill and a small
part of the Town of High Wycombe itself.
St Michael and All Angels is of course associated with Hughenden Manor, the home
of Benjamin Disraeli, who is buried at the Church. This historical association naturally
attracts many visitors. However, we hope that when they come they will find a ‘house
of prayer’ and a community filled with a living and vibrant faith. At the heart of
what we do lies the worship of God our Father as we seek to live out our lives as
followers of Jesus his Son. Our worship is as diverse as the parish we serve. On
any Sunday we have a reflective early morning spoken service of Holy communion, two
services (one in the evening) led by a formal robed choir that have a traditional
feel and also a service led by a music group that has a much more contemporary edge.
We seek to meet the spiritual needs of all who come of whatever age background and
temperament and our vision, reflected in our mission statement is ‘to enable all
to follow Jesus Christ’.
We hope that this website will be of interest to you and will help you discover a
little about how we might serve you. There is no substitute however for coming along
and experiencing the real thing! If you live in the Parish, St Michael’s is very
much your church, though of course you don’t need to live in the parish to receive
a very warm welcome. We would love to see you.
