A grand 'wool' church (Listed Grade 1) with a magnificent 15th century tower and a friendly congregation using modern English services and a variety of music. There was a big pottery industry here for several centuries, exporting Grimstonware all over Europe, so maybe St.Botolph's is a pottery church as much as a wool church., and the Western half of the parish is called Pott Row.
We've stopped using hymnbooks for the Sunday service, as all the words come up on the screen, with pictures to aid worship. For those who can't read from the screen, everything is also printed. Large print hymns etc need to be ordered in advance but we're very happy to produce them (01485-600335).
The most family-friendly service of the month is the third Sunday of the month (except August) when there's late breakfast from 10.15am until 10.45, before a 45 min.service with families in mind.
Registers are extant from 1552 and also held in Norwich at the Record Office, but we have photographed every page, and indexed or transcribed them too . Email [email protected] if you would like help with your search, or to have jpg files of register pages for a small fee.

A few years ago we were featured in the national press as the first to announce that we take Euros in the collection. We still do, but how long will that last?
