Shanklin Isle of Wight St. Blasius Old Parish Church
Welcome to St Blasius
A friendly, welcoming church in an 860 year old building in a delightful setting. Our services are traditional with an emphasis upon uplifting hymns led by our excellent organist and choir. A service of Matins takes place once a month. There is access for wheelchairs.
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.

POLICY POLICY
Whilst The Church Is ClosedWhy Not Join Us Here for Worship
OPENING OF CHURCHES FOR SUPERVISED PERSONAL PRAYER AND FUNERALS. The Government is allowing places of worship to open from Monday 15th June, for supervised personal prayer and funeral services. This will be greatly appreciated by many, at this time of suffering and uncertainty. However, the opening of Churches is dependent upon each Church being able to fulfil all the necessary safety requirements following a full Risk Assessment. Having reviewed the guidance received from the Diocese and consulted with Church Wardens and others, it is very much regretted that we will not be able to open St Blasius Church at the present time, either for personal prayer or funeral services. It is a great sadness that our Church needs to remain closed at the present time, but we are blessed with a beautiful churchyard where you are welcome to walk and sit and find time and space for personal contemplation and prayer. You are very welcome to join us online, via our website, for prayer and worship every Sunday. We will ensure that you are kept up to date as the situation changes and develops.
