Bridlington Churches

Flamborough, St Oswald

One of the four churches in the Headland Benefice, St Oswald's has a long tradition of sharing the love of God through hospitality. You are most welcome to join us. Our services are Holy Communion at 8am and 10.30am on a Sunday, Holy Communion at 10.30am on a Thursday, and Morning prayer at 8am Tuesday to Friday. At the 10.30 Sunday services our choir sings. We join the other churches of our Benefice on the fifth Sunday for a United Benefice service. Check our website for more details.

We welcome visitors at our monthly lunch at 12 noon on the second Thursday in the month, and Coffee and Chat, 2-4pm on the first Saturday in the month, both in our church hall across the road from the church. And our flower festival is legendary! That is on the first weekend in August, with refreshments and stalls in the hall.

At the southern end of the Benefice, the parish of Flamborough St Oswald extends from the point where Dane's Dyke meets Bridlington Bay, to the south, right round the 'Head' to the point where the northern end of Dane's Dyke runs out into the North Sea. The church is a 12th century building with an excellent carved rood screen and loft. It also boasts a royal pardon granted by Charles II in 1660 to Walter Strickland, absolving him of high treason, despite the fact that Strickland had supported Parliament during the Civil War. The church is open from 8am till 4pm daily.
