Holkham: St Withburga

Welcome to the parish church of St Withburga which is situated on the North side of the parish within the Holkham estate. Vehicle access is though gates from the coast road between Holkham Village and the Burnham Market turning. Worship during the winter months takes place in the Chapel at Holkham Hall which can be accessed via the main gates (drive right up to the Hall and access the Chapel through the brown door in the left wing) but the church remains open for visitors throughout the year.

You are welcome to join us for worship. We usually have worship in the Benefice on Sundays at 9.30am & 11.00am and on Wednesdays we worship alongside our Methodist brothers and sisters. Please check below for the venue and service type.
