For major festivals in the church year, St Michael's Church uses its handsome pre-Reformation chalice. A hall mark indicates the chalice was made in 1534, or perhaps at an even earlier date.

The font dates from the days when the church was enlarged in the 15th century, according to A.G. Randle Buck, "but the square stone with worn ornaments on the top corners may well be the base of the font which was in the previous Norman church".
