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 our vicar, Rev Clive Todd. To find out more about the other churches in the emerging Mission Community of the West Wight, visit the Five Churches website

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, 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 Mead 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.
