Welcome to our church of St. Mary the Virgin, Shalford, with St. Michael’s, Peasmarsh. We aim to be a welcoming community of people seeking to understand and live out our Christian faith in a modern and inclusive way.

Our congregations include people from a wide age group, worshipping together in lively yet traditional services.

We always welcome newcomers who wish to come along and those who are interested in finding out about our ideals. As a recent visitor said, “we felt really at home at St. Mary’s and received a fantastic welcome”.

We are in vacancy, the time between Vicars, at the moment. If you have any questions or enquiries please contact our Churchwarden or the Parish Office.

New Vicar announced for St Mary’s - on Sunday 13th January it was announced that the Lord Chancellor had approved the appointment of the Reverend Sarah Lloyd as Vicar of Shalford. Sarah's formal installation service is on Tuesday 19th March - for details please click here. We look forward to welcoming Sarah to our church.
