St Michael's Church is the parish church of the village of Caerwys in Flintshire, North East Wales, UK. It has a late 13th Century tower and nave to which a chancel and a north aisle were later added. The building contains a 13th Century effigy, broken sepulchral slabs of 14th Century date, and a range of wooden furnishings of the 17th Century. The church has two lychgates, one originally dating to 15th Century. The earliest reference to the church is in 1244 when it was nominated as a meeting place between Prince David and King Henry III and was referred to again in 1284, when compensation was paid to the rector for damage done to the church during Edward I's incursion into Wales. It is evident that there was an existing settlement and church prior to the laying out of the planned town from 1290. The church is generally open during daylight hours and is easy to access from the gate on Pen-y-Cefn Road.
