About the Church

St Michael & All Angels, Shalbourne, Wiltshire SN8 3QH

Shalbourne is one of a group of 11 village parishes in north-east Wiltshire, which form part of the Deanery of Pewsey in the Diocese of Salisbury. The Parish belongs to the Savernake Team Ministry and you can read more about what’s going on across the area in the Ministry Team-sheet and more about the Parish in the monthly newsletter on the Services page.

Our lovely church is 12th century in origin and has been in continual use (apart from a period of extensive restoration during the 1870s). The tower contains a full (working) set of bells dating from the 1660s and the War Memorial outside has recently been listed Grade II. We have a loyal and enthusiastic congregation and the church can be packed to the rafters for key festivals and concerts. You are most welcome to join us.

The bells at St. Michael and All Angels have been re-energised, thanks to Ian Dalziel's efforts. Practices are held on Thursdays at about 7.15pm. All levels of ability are welcome, and instruction is provided. Sessions last about an hour and a half, and both apprentice and experienced ringers have been known to slip off to the pub for a pint to reward their efforts.


The Church looked really wonderful for Craig and Anni Rowe's wedding. Bindy Kent did a beautiful job with wild flowers making all the windows look like fields. A lovely arch went into the Chancel and at the entrance two large displays dominated the porch. Afterwards they had a reception in Josh Hosier's barn.

The Church tent went up to help the garden opening at Prosperous Farm for the Village Hall. The event was a great success, the weather perfect and garden wonderful. In St Michael's we had the Fix and Repair day on 22nd June and thanks to many helpers who were present.

We have two Lay services in July and we will be welcoming Ann Massey who will be leading a few Shalbourne services in the Summer.  

On Thursday 1st August the Church will have its five yearly inspection. This is when the building and all the property, equipment and systems are checked by our architects and administrators.  We will be holding a fund raising raffle for the Church to coincide with the Shalbourne Classic Car Rally on 29th September. The main prize will be a wheelbarrow donated by Mundy's of Burbage, full of goodies. Tickets will be available shortly.
