About this church

Step inside All saints Flixborough and you are greeted with a simple and unassuming beauty. Sit quietly and absorb the atmosphere in which generations of people have come to find peace.

The current church in Flixborough High Street is not the first church to be built in Flixborough. An earlier church once stood on this site. However, the original church was on another site altogether on the higher ground above Flixborough and immediately adjacent to what is now the old slag tip. This original church site is about 10 minutes walk from Flixborough High Street.

A gravestone at this site reads: Remember friend, I've called on thee, to flee from sin and misery, neglect not then thy day of grace, for o thy time it flies apace, and soon thoule be laid low as me, prepare then for eternity.

All Saints is a 'thankful church' (blessed church) in that the village of Flixborough did not lose a single person to the Great War or to the Second World War. The lower section of the east window contains an inscription which shows angels protecting the church with a banner, which reads 'This window is dedicated to the Glory of God and in thankfulness for the safe return of those from this parish who served in the wars 1914 to 1918 and 1939 to 1945'.
