Filey Parish is an enthusiastic Church of England family that offers a variety of worship styles from traditional to very informal.

You will find a warm and friendly welcome at all of our churches

as we gather to worship God in fellowship with each other.​​


We welcome all people

with love, respect and equality.

Covid-19 Update:  March 2022

There are now no restrictions on coming into church. By all accounts, we are now back to ‘normal’.  Although restrictions have been lifted, we continue to ask you to be thoughtful and careful as there are those among us who are vulnerable. When coming in it is a good idea to sanitise your hands and we will continue to offer that facility. Masks are not mandatory. 



‘Open Church' has started again.

St. John's Church in Filey will have Open Church on the first Saturday of every month from 10am to 12 noon (next Open church will be Saturday 4th June).

St. Oswald's Church in Filey will have next Open Church over the Platinum Jubilee long weekend - Thursday 2nd June, Friday 3rd June and Saturday 4th June 10:30am to 12:30pm.

We are continuing to meet via Zoom for Morning Prayer and Evening Prayer on Wednesday and Thursday morning at 9am and Sunday evening at 6pm.  Please visit our Services Page for more information of how to join.
