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.
Weddings
With its picturesque surroundings, St Blasius makes the ideal setting for your wedding.
Baptisms

POLICY POLICY
If you’re unable to join us in Church why not share in worship with us here This Sunday’s Service
Coronavirus Update It is a great sadness that government restrictions, effective from 5th November, mean that we will be unable to meet together in our Churches for Sunday Worship during the rest of November. This means that we will not be able to hold the usual Services of Remembrance and Civic Ceremonies in Church or around the War memorials on Sunday 8th November. However, on Wednesday 4th November, the Island’s High Sheriff, together with representatives from the local Council and local Churches, laid wreaths at a number of War Memorials, including Sandown Sea Front and Shanklin Old Village. These ceremonies were arranged by the Council at very short notice, before the government updated their guidance for Remembrance Sunday. I am please to say that both St Blasius and St John’s were represented by Reverend Tony Richards. During this second period of lockdown, you are invited to join us in worship and prayer by using our online worship material available on our website. The material for Remembrance Sunday provides an opportunity to share in an Act of Remembrance at home, as we mark the 75th Anniversary of the ending of the Second World War Reverend Jonathan Hall
