St Michael,

Garton in


‘The premier traditional church of

Holderness, and beyond.’

St Michael’s Church  is the most northerly of the  seven parishes of South Holderness Coastal  Benefice, and contains the three scattered hamlets  of Garton, Grimston and Fitling. St Michael's is a traditional church using only the  Book of Common Prayer, the King James Bible, and Hymns Ancient and Modern for every service. Regular special services include Plough Sunday in  January (with a guest speaker and attended by civic heads), St Michael's Day in September, Harvest  Festival in October, and a Midnight Mass by  candlelight on 24 December.  The Deanery Choir  also visits around 4 times a year for Choral  Evensong. The church building dates from the 13th century  and is supported by the thriving Friends of St  Michael's (a registered charity) whose members  come from all over East Yorkshire and in some  cases from several countries around the world. The Friends organise a popular cricket match every year and in 2014 the Friends ran the inaugural  Strawberry Tea in June and a Crafts Fair in August. The Friends also organise a Christmas Music  Concert in December.
