St Michael Sonning Common



Saturday 9th July

10.30am - 3.00pm

Have you passed St Michael's on the Peppard Road and wondered what it is like inside? Everyone in the local neighbourhood is invited to come along to our open day. There will be guided tours at 11.00am and 2.00pm to explain aspects related to the Catholic faith and point out unexpected features of the church.

Members of the parish community will be on hand to talk about different areas of parish life. There will also be a supply of drinks and cakes throughout the day.

Everyone is very welcome

St Michael Catholic Church, Sonning Common is situated in South Oxfordshire and is part of the Archdiocese of Birmingham. As well as Sonning Common, the parish includes Emmer Green, Caversham Park Village in North Reading and a number of smaller South Oxfordshire villages including Kidmore End, Rotherfield Peppard and Stoke Row.


The aim of our website is two-fold:

  • To be a first point of contact and welcome for people searching for a Catholic church in this area.
  • To keep current members of the parish community informed of parish activities.
