Thank you for your interest in St. Mary's Church. 

St Mary's is situated on Earlham Road opposite Earlham Park, near the University of East Anglia and the UEA Student Village. St. Mary's is within the Parish of Earlham, along with the sister churches, St. Anne and St. Elizabeth and has strong links with the community of West Earlham. St. Mary's dates back to 13/15th century, a flint church with a quiet churchyard surrounding. 

Our morning service of worship takes place at 11.15am. The service includes worship songs, readings, prayers and a bible-based reflection. We welcome people of all ages to join together in worship and grow in faith. We celebrate Holy Communion twice a month (usually the 2nd & 4th Sundays). 

If you would like to discuss a christening, baptism or wedding please come along to the morning service and speak with the vicar or a member of the ministry team. We look forward to welcoming you to this beautiful church. 

St Mary's Church Hall, Hutchinson Road is available for hire and has a fully equipped modern kitchen, small dining area and large meeting area. Forhall hire enquiries please contact Johnny Warnes (01603 457636). 

This beautiful church is well worth a visit for its atmosphere and serenity. The church is open to visitors on Bank Holidays and occasional Sunday afternoons. If the church is locked please contact the Churchwarden (01603 453873) and we will gladly arrange for you to visit the church.
