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.

We have been without a permanent vicar for a year or so, and in common with the other parishes in our cluster in the West Wight, are delighted at the recent appointment of our new priest, Rev Clive Todd, who began with us on 22 April 2018.

We have services two or three times each month, and look forward to seeing you at one of these soon; you will be most welcome.

To help us with our restoration programme, we hold events and competitions. Please sign up to our newsletter (see below) to keep informed of these activities.
