Benefice:

Suburban are but also including outer estates. The Mediaeval church restored in the 19th century, is still looked to by old Tilehurst families who now find themselves living in neighbouring parishes which once came under St Michael's. The church has a very large burial ground with burial rights extending well beyond the present parish of St Michael's. Numbers attending church services are encouraging.
