The Team

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 its activities in the monthly newsletter on this 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.

Bell - Ringing

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.

A month of contrasts in every way has led us to believe we are at last on the way out of Covid 19. Dreadful numbers every evening then rapidly improving. The very cold weather followed by an early taste of spring. Zoom meetings are very well attended and even more frequent, but now hopefully we can soon await a return to our normal order.

The possible challenge is to be able to walk our Cross, within the rules, between our villages on Good Friday.

For Lent during weekdays our Team are holding short prayer meetings morning and evening at 9am and 6pm on the regular zoom access. And on Tuesday's at 7.30pm Canon Patrick Whitworth is giving his Lenten Talks and discussions. His theme is 'How Jesus Meets Us....' and is very popular with well over 60 screens attending. Zoom access details are on the poster in the Shop, or it can be followed on his YouTube.

Pewsey Deanery Reflections continue daily, having run for almost a year now.

Colin held a small service at Shalbourne to plant a flowering cherry tree in memory of Martin Wild, attended only by his family.
