About Us

St. Andrew's is situated in one of the smallest villages of the six in the Quidenham Group of parishes. We have a population of approximately 100 and a small but faithful congregation who worship here on at least one Sunday per month. Quidenham is home to the Carmelite Monastery with some 20 nuns and a Children’s Hospice, which provides respite care for children with life threatening illnesses. In addition, there is the Quidenham Village Society, an enthusiastic group of people who care for the heritage and history of the village and provide for the social needs of villagers. St Andrew’s is a Saxon round tower church. The Lady Chapel has a commemorative window to US airmen of the 96th Bombardment Group, who were stationed nearby at Snetterton Heath and suffered many casualties during World War II. An impressive collection of artefacts are housed in a museum close to the village in New Eccles Hall School. We are a cheerful and active PCC, who in 2017 helped the congregation, village, scouts and dancers to work together produce a pantomime in the church! We are happy to consider new ways of reaching the community.

We meet in St Andrew’s on the 3rd Sunday of the month at 11am, which enables us to meet and worship with our friends in the neighbouring villages of Eccles and Wilby on the remaining Sundays - on the 4th Sunday of the month in Eccles at 11am, and on the 2nd Sunday in a month in Wilby at 9.30am, and we vary between Eccles at Quidenham on the 1st Sunday of the month at 8.30am. It doesn't take too long to get used to :-).
