Church of England Diocese of Norwich Hempstead with Lessingham and Eccles

Hempstead: St Andrew

We are working hard to enable the reopening of our church building, slowly, steadily and safely. In the meantime, contact us for our details of our Coastal Group service on Zoom.

Many in our community are at increased risk, and our priority is the safety of all.

We will be open for public worship on a limited basis from August. 

Sadly it looks unlikely that the Beach Service at Eccles will happen this year due to government restrictions for large gatherings.


The parish of Hempstead with Eccles and Lessingham is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults.

We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs.

The Diocese of Norwich’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs.

If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
