St Edmund's Horningtoft
CHURCH SERVICES resume from Easter Sunday April 4th (with current Govt. social guidelines).
Services and events click tab / then Calendar tab. And BENEFICE Services tab for our local Churches group.
St Edmund's Church, Horningtoft, features distinctive folk art on the historic panelling, and contemporary woodwork made in the village. Heritage files accessible in St Edmund's for village history.
The official title of the Church's Patron Saint Edmund is St Edmund the Martyr, after the last king of East Anglia. He died, A.D. 870, holding to his faith at the hands of pagan Vikings, but his memory was honoured by subsequent Vikings, and for a time he was named as the Patron Saint of all England.
[The Upper Wensum Benefice, which includes Horningtoft Church, is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Norwich’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.]
