Christians Working Together In Shanklin


Several local churches are working together to create a united witness in the community.  This formal arrangement was launched in January 2002 though the churches and leaders have been worshiping and working together for many years.

There is also a network of Churches on the Island, Wight Churches, with a website and information service, which serves the whole Christian community on the Isle of Wight.

CWTiS Urgently Needs a New Treasurer

The accounts are quite simple with only a small amount of activity so anyone with a basic grasp of banking would be able to handle this small task. Do please pray that someone will come forward and offer very soon.

Events and Activities

Shared Worship

During the 'winter' season, September to May, each Sunday at 18:30 the churches in Shanklin have a shared worship, with each of the churches taking it in turns to host the service.

All are most welcome to join in these meetings where there is a growing depth of fellowship and prayer.


The Churches of Shanklin join together for three events at Easter.

- Lent meetings on a Tuesday lunchtime.

- A Procession of Witness on Good Friday (Click on the pictures for a larger version)


- An Easter Sunday sunrise service on Hope Beach at around 06:00, depending when Easter is (see the pictures below from previous year's services - Click on the pictures for a larger version).

Rylstone Gardens Open Air Praise

From the last Sunday in May until the last one in August, at 19:30, we have Praise and Worship in the open air every week on Sunday evening in Rylstone Gardens - a lovely inspiring setting for Christian worship.

The season of open air praise services starts each year on Pentecost Sunday and runs through to the end of August. Different groups take it in turns to lead the meetings and always attracts a good number of holiday visitors - if the weather isn't fair then we resort to meeting in one of Shanklin's Churches.
