St Michael at the North Gate is a church in Cornmarket Street, at the junction with Ship Street, in central Oxford, England. The name derives from the church's location on the site of the north gate of Oxford when it was surrounded by a city wall.

Since 1971, it has served as the ceremonial City Church of Oxford, and has joined the parishes of the two earlier City Churches with its own.

  • Great views from top of the Tower if you are not scared of hights. Well worth a look.
  • Beautiful city centre church. God gift shop and Tower. Small and peaceful. Pre Covid had lunchtime concerts and often open for prayer. Fairtrade shop in basement of admin building through courtyard.
