St Michael's is part of the Five Alive Mission Community: Dalwood, Kilmington, Shute with Whitford and Yarcombe.

St Michael's, Shute

The Parish of Shute has a population of about 650, with an employment pattern varied, but mainly serving the neighbouring towns, Axminster and Honiton.  East Devon is still essentially an agricultural area, but modern technology means that very few are now employed in that industry.  The Parish is also a sought after place for those of retirement age, and those attracted to the school for their children. 

The population of the parish is concentrated, first in the village of Whitford; second in Shute, and smaller concentrations are: Umborne, Seaton Junction, and Hampton.  There are also scattered farms throughout. 

St Michael’s, Shute

A chapel was built on the site of St Michael’s during the 13th century.  It was enlarged during the 15th century when the lady chapel was built, and again in the 19th century when the north aisle was added.

Services take place at St Michael’s on two Sundays each month, with one held at St Mary’s and a combined service with the other Mission Community congregations rotating between the different parishes.
