Welcome to the site of St. Alban's Church in the Parish of Godshill. Founded in 1889 as a chapel-of-ease in the Parish of Godshill to counterbalance

the extreme evangelicalism that was prevalent in Ventnor Town in the 19th Century, St. Alban's offer traditional Anglo-Catholic worship and music to

a remarkably high standard for a small yet friendly congregation in the best that Anglicanism has to offer.

THE HOUSE OF GOD

Traditional Anglo-Catholic Worship

Fr. John auto

Placeing special emphases on bereavement and healing ministries,we hold many events throughout the year catering for the special times in the liturgical year and family life.

 

St. Alban The Martyr Church  - on the hill is  one of those hidden gems of Ventnor, hidden because it’s situated

on the hill of quiet cul-de-sac of St. Alban’s Road and next to St. Alban’s Steps that used to be the main pedestrian

route between upper and lower Ventnor. And a ‘gem’ because of its fine architecture, superb acoustics and many interesting artefacts – including many original items of worship from our former 1889 'Tin' tabernacle and our own fossilised aquatics in the Purbeck marble columns of our current 1920's perminent stone church.

 

You are welcome to worship with us whatever your church background, we welcome all to come worship

with us in a traditional sung Anglo-Catholic service. Services are held twice a week at St. Alban's and at our

mother church of All Saints' - Godshill. St. Alban's Sundays and Wednesdays at 9:30 a.m. or 11:00 am on

Sundays and 9:30 am on Tuesdays at All Saints'. For those of you who cannot cope with the steps, at the

times advertised we hold Mass on the flat at St. Margaret’s Hall, Lowtherville - Upper Ventnor.

 

We have many special services and concerts throughout the year, so please do keep an eye out for notices within the local community.We look forward to welcoming you to our Church of St. Alban - in the most traditional atmosphere of Anglican worship.

 

Yours in Christ.
