Getting here

A place where spirituality is celebrated for every parishioner and visitor.

The church is usually open during the day, for quiet and reflection, and for historical interest.

Amongst many alluring medieval features, the church includes a small cell below ground floor level on the north side of the chancel, where prisoners bound for the gallows were reputedly held overnight, Brisley being a midway point on the two-day cart ride from Lynn to Norwich.

Revd Robin Stapleford became Rector of the Upper Wensum group in the summer of 2008. The churchmanship style in the benefice at large is central, with early morning said Prayer Book (trad) Communion, and mid-morning Common Worship Communion, sometimes Family Service, and usually no evening services. Hymns are usually selected from 'Hymns Old and New'.

An informal Morning Prayer is said each Friday at 9.30 am, rotating around the benefice as advertised, and at St Mary Colkirk every Saturday at 9 am, also providing opportunity to speak to the Rector without appointment. A 'Julian' (of Norwich) - silent, contemplative - prayer meeting is held at Colkirk Rectory about once per quarter as advertised.

Enquiries for weddings and christenings (baptism), or other special services, are welcome.

God bless you.

Revd Robin
