#Fileys plaque by the Paddling pool

 Erected in beautiful places in the World , this simple plaque is one of hundreds , with different verses placed by the German , now world wide ,Evangelical sisterhood of Mary , which was started by Basilea Schlink  after the devastation of Darmstadt in WW2 .

New Vicar installed next week

I can see from the stats that the traffic has increased on this more/less archived site. 

I expect you all want to know about Rev Nigel Chapman who will be installed and inducted next Tuesday 13th December  at ST Oswalds  at 7pm . Please pray that he is richly blessed in his work amongst us , and that we all SUPPORT  him and Viv .

I have no idea what the future hold for the Social Media in Filey Parish . This blog is still here because we  get enough traffic on the old posts to make it worth while. 
We have active and well visited TWITTER  and FACEBOOK Sites.  The present website  fileyparish.net  is just ticking over at present. If you want detailed info about activities please just use the contact numbers given on Facebook  or email the Parish Office , Liz  will get back to you .

Ian Nesbit has given me permission to use this stunning photo of the north side of the Brigg. The #fb group Photos of Filey Old and New is well worth joining Facebook for !

28th July 2016

Filey Methodist Church
I was on the bus from Scarborough yesterday and a caravanner staying in Cayton was telling me how she liked Filey . I told her I lived in the old town and that my cottage was at least 18th C , and then amazed her by saying that the roof beams were ship's masts. I had a captive audience when I went on to mention that our cottage is built of boulders from the beach . She went on to remark that she had no idea Filey had an old town . 
People visiting Filey think that Filey Methodist is the Parish Church , and do not realise when arriving for a day trip that the north east part of Filey has some  fascinating old streets, and ancient Parish Church almost  on the cliffs , a great little museum and the car -friendly Country Park where the best views of the bay and Filey Brigg  are to be found. I'm saying this because to me Filey Methodist, St Marys RC and the Salvation Army Church and our own  St Johns and St Thomas's Gristhorpe are the CHURCH together in Filey . To me , a church is where a roof  over our heads,  whilst meeting for Prayer and Worship , is just that-somewhere where we are warm and dry .

So next Thursday  28th July , our little cottage is going to become a place where we DO CHURCH  from 9am until 2pm . I am inviting all you out of Filey , to find some time on that day to take a few minutes out , wherever YOU are and DO CHURCH in your home , office or school with a friend, or alone with the HS (that makes 2, or is it really 5) and pray for us.  PCC members  and Bishop Alison will be interviewing candidates to be our new Priest.
