Due to the current lockdown in England services at both St. John's Church in Filey and St. Thomas' Church in Gristhorpe are postponed until further notice. Decisions are being made about services at St. Oswald's church in Filey.
Although many services are on hold, our churches are open for worship at set times. Please see ‘Services’ page for more detail.
When coming into church you will be asked to sanitise your hands and register your attendance. No singing is allowed except by the choir who will be socially distanced.
Face coverings are mandatory in places of worship and church halls. While there are exemptions, this is a legal requirement.
Please observe 2m social distancing at all times, you may have to queue for a short time before entering church and you are asked not to socialise after the service. Refreshments are not being served for the time being.
Please do not enter if you feel at all unwell or are displaying any symptoms of coving – 19 such as:
Loss of smell and taste
Please follow all directions and markers set out and avoid contact with items as far as possible. If using hymn books leave them in the pew. Please take your individual service sheet home with you if you wish.
Please follow the instructions and advice from those leading the service and those caring for your safety, especially during Holy Communion, which is in one kind (Bread only).
Thank you for your co-operation
God of healing and peace,
we give thanks for this place in which to worship you.
Guide each one of us as we seek protection for all from the coronavirus; in the name of him who gave his life for us all,
our Saviour Jesus Christ.
