The Friends of St Michael’s contribute to the care of the Church’s fabric, fixtures, and fittings and promote the use of the building for cultural and community events. Some of you may already know the inside of the church from concerts, lectures, parties, visits, rather than from the daily worship that goes on here.
Known affectionately as the ‘cathedral of the back streets’, St Michael and All Angels is famous for its magnificent stained-glass windows; in the south aisle by the Pre-Raphaelites, William Morris, Edward Burne-Jones, Ford Madox-Brown, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Philip Webb, and in the north aisle by Kempe & Tower. Simon Jenkins, in his book ‘England’s Thousand Best Churches’, placed it within the foremost one hundred.
