Church of England Diocese of Norwich Thetford


Open for services and events, as seen on our calendar.

Getting here

Welcome to St. Cuthbert’s, Thetford.  We are a Parish Church in the Centre of the town and enjoy hosting Community Events and Civic Services.  Most of our Worship is liturgical (Common Worship) with hymns led by the Organ and the robed choir.  In addition to Sunday Services, which are a mix of Holy Communion, Morning Worship and All Age Worship, we also have a Midweek Communion Service (Wednesday mornings at 10.30am).  We are a friendly, welcoming and open Church of a broadly Evangelical tradition.

Sunday school for children present at our services is based on Scripture Union stories and games, as appropriate for the children's ages.

Coffee is served after the services, which encourages people to stay and catch up on parish news, or introduce themselves, if they are new. The church is also open on Saturday and Tuesday mornings for conversation with coffee! 


If you would like to use St Cuthbert's Church or church hall for an event, please contact the clergy. See Contact Us.
