The medieval building has a Georgian interior and is a calm light space with no stained glass. The building speaks for itself, and what you see is what you get. To the many passers-by during the week, we are a familiar landmark building standing at a busy crossroads in the city, and we are so grateful the have the support of local businesses and residents.
Our worship is straightforward Anglican, accessible and undemonstrative. We enjoy intelligent open-minded sermons and good music, usually provided on our excellent organ (the original 1802 instrument in its original gallery position) that suits the building perfectly. The peal of six bells in the church tower is rung after the service on most Sundays.
We are a committed and growing congregation all playing our part in helping St George's Colegate meet its role as the parish church of Norwich Over-the-Water. In late 2010 we carried out a long-overdue project to update a 1960s kitchen and toilet to provide an accessible meeting room within the medieval structure, thus helping to unlock the potential of the building for the next part of its history. This room is well used, for example evening courses during Lent, holding our 'Dirty Shirt Club' meetings, and offering a place of retreat for parents and children during the Sunday service (which can be followed on a small TV screen). In 2011 and again in 2016 we managed to complete necessary repairs to stonework, guttering, roof timbers and the pew floors, and also to dust all the historic monuments.
We have researched and produced guides and leaflets including an illustrated Georgian trail, highlighting the important place of the church in the lives of many people in Georgian Norwich. For more information on what we've been up to recently, please take a look at our Picture Gallery - click the button to the right. We try to keep this updated, and the latest pictures appear towards the end of the last batch of 25.
