Welcome to the website of Shalfleet church, St Michael the Archangel, situated in the small village of Shalfleet, four miles east of the beautiful harbour town of Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight.
People have been worshiping at Shalfleet church since the 12th century, and on the site for many hundreds of years before that. The church still stands at the heart of the village, opposite the pub and next to the village hall and the little green where the village fete takes place.
Shalfleet is in a cluster of 9 parish churches in the West Wight looked after by a Rector. We are currently in interregnum, and while we wait for the appointment of a successor to Rev Clive, we continue to hold services as and when we can. To find out more about the other churches in the emerging Mission Community of the West Wight, visit the Five Churches website
To help us with our restoration programme, we hold events and competitions, and have a separate charity, the Shalfleet Church Fabric Trust, which helps with funding this work and with general maintenance of the churchyard. Please sign up to our newsletter (see below) to keep informed of these activities.
Finally, our safeguarding officer is Brian Meredith who may be contacted through this website. We have adopted the House of Bishop’s ‘Promoting a Safer Church’ Policy, details of which may be found here.
