Church of England Diocese of Norwich Wellingham

About Us

St Andrew's Church, Wellingham   

We are a small rural Norfolk Church, here to serve God & our community                 

There is no precise date for the founding of St Andrew's Church, but the experts believe that the nave was built by the Normans and the chancel was added in the 13th century.

The first firm date in St Andrew's history is 1304, when its first rector is recorded. Blomefield calls him William de Holm, but Bryant gives him the grander title Ralph de Hulmo de Wysinguete*.

The Church has very interesting rood screens and more can be seen on Allan Barton's website Medieval Art

*taken from: Wellingham was there by John Timpson. Copies available at the back of the church.


The parish is part of the Launditch and Upper Nar Benefice.
