  • Update concerning COVID-19

    We are very pleased to say that following Government guidance, our church buildings are now open again 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.

    From Sunday 6th September services will be held in each of our 'working' churches. Service times will be
    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 shielding (or do not feel ready to come out just yet). 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
