• Welcome to Stalham Benefice


    Welcome to the website of the churches of Stalham, Sutton, Ingham, East Ruston and Brunstead. Whether you live in one of the parishes, are coming to visit or just browsing, we hope you enjoy looking around. On this site you will find information about our services, churches, groups and events. Do please contact us if we can help at all, and if you are thinking of joining us for a service or event, be assured of a very warm welcome.

  • Update concerning COVID-19

    In line with Government guidance, our church buildings remain open for private prayer during the day. If you would like to visit one of the churches at a time when it is not open, please contact a churchwarden.

    During the second lockdown we are unable to join together for communal worship, but we have just begun to try live streaming services - during lockdown you can join with us at 9.30am via our Facebook page.

    From Sunday 6th December services will be held as follows, and one service will be streamed:
    9.15am at Holy Trinity, Ingham
    9.15am at St Michael's, Sutton
    10.30am at St Mary's, Stalham

    Precautions such as social distancing, extra cleaning and hand sanitising will be in place, and sadly at the moment that also means there will be no singing in our services. Face coverings are required other than for those who are exempt. 

    We are continuing to support those who are still wary of going out. Please follow this link for more information, along with the latest guidance on weddings and funerals.

    If you need to talk, please don't hesitate to ring one of the numbers on our contact page.

    Every Blessing, Simon
