Opening Times

During British Summer Time the church is open from 10.00am until 4.00pm. During the winter months the Church is open for Sunday Services. It may be possible for it to be opened at other times by appointment. Please telephone the Church Warden 01983 868436
St. Blasius Church is part of the Isle of Wight Deanery of the Diocese of Portsmouth and is one of the churches on the Isle of Wight and was only established in 1853. The church itself was built during the reign of King Stephen, so is over 850 years old, but for much of its history was the family chapel for Shanklin Manor. As Shanklin began to grow in Victorian times the Lord of the manor gave the church to the town as the parish church for the Old Village and the new development to the north. As the town grew and spread towards Sandown in the north, two new parishes were formed, St. Paul’s near the station and St. Saviour’s on the cliff. Being on the southern extreme of the town, St. Blasius church has remained in many ways a country church. Information on the history of St Blasius can be found here.

Services

Everyone is very welcome at our Services. The heart of our worshipping life is the celebration of the Eucharist or Holy Communion at 10:15 am on Sundays. Once a month, usually the third Sunday, Matins from the Book of Common Prayer takes place at 10.15 am instead of Parish Communion. Information on services for the month can be found here.
