About Us

A 'PARISH CHURCH' like ours in the Church of England is a spiritual venue, a sacred space for all parishioners - wherever a person might identify themselves on the spectrum of faith or understanding of life. Every resident has a civic right to access their parish church not only for quiet reflection, prayers, and historic interest, but also to mark the 'seasons of life' including the celebration of a new arrival (CHRISTENING - a Christian service of blessing and thanksgiving), WEDDINGS (for people of any faith and including divorcees), and FUNERALS in church, or with the Vicar (Rector / parish priest) at a crematorium chapel, including for people who considered themselves 'not particularly religious' - many people today are 'spiritual but not religious' or might believe in 'Something' in life without wanting to give it a name; we are here for you, we are here for everyone. Contact the Upper Wensum Benefice (local parish / village grouping) Rector, the Reverend Robin Stapleford, at the 'Get in touch' tab on the left-hand column for more information or specific enquiry.

We are open daily (at least 10 am to 4 pm) for quiet reflection, prayer, and historic interest.

The building (click HERE) s medieval in origin with Victorian rebuilding work here and there. There are Victorian stained glass windows and one reassembled window using medieval fragments broken up following the Reformation era, 16th - 17th C. A set of contemporary angels, reproduced by a Colkirk artist (with one original), adorn the formerly blank 20th C. 'rood' screen facing the nave, the main body the church.

All Saints ruin at Oxwick, to the south-west, is used for Christian worship twice per year.

Pattesley, the next hamlet south on the Litcham Road, still within Colkirk parish, once featured its own parish church of St John the Baptist.
