Church of England Diocese of Norwich Carleton Forehoe

Carleton Forehoe St Mary the Virgin

You are very welcome to our medieval church of St Mary in Carleton Forehoe. The Church can be easily seen from the Watton Road as it lies in a large field on the village edge. Parking is available in the farmyard next to the church and is clearly signposted when services are scheduled. In winter bring a torch as there are no street lights and footwear suitable for walking across a field! There are no toilets unfortunately. Refreshments are often served after services but check the calendar for details

St Mary's Church has been the centre of Christian worship, prayer and praise to God for nearly 1000 years. Now part of the Barnham Broom and Upper Yare Team of Parishes, a Group of 13 parishes with 15 churches (Groupof15), we continue to be dedicated to proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ and serving our community.

The Marriage Measure of 2008 makes it possible for you to get married in this beautiful church.

St Mary’s is set in a stunning rural location with beautiful views over the Norfolk countryside.

Illuminated by candles, the church has a timeless quality and warm ambiance.

The minstrels’ gallery and traditional hand pumped organ make St Mary’s a unique choice for your perfect wedding.

There is vehicle access across the mown field and seating for one hundred guests and parking is available..

The meadow surrounding St Mary’s can be hired to accommodate a marquee for your reception, by private arrangement.
