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.
The Church continues to be alive and active, but our buildings must close...
In light of the Government guidance around non-essential contact, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued advice that public worship is suspended until further notice and our church buildings will be closed. However, this does not mean that we will be ceasing to pray and worship. Our worship of God and our care for each other continue but cannot be done in our buildings.
Our pattern of prayer will continue and Revd Brenda will live-stream a service from the Rectory on Sundays at 11.00am and Wednesdays at 10.00am. These, along with live-streams and recordings of previous services can be watched by clicking here: Youtube Channel, St Nicholas Wells.
Pew sheets for our Sunday services can be downloaded from the links on the homepage of our main website - please click on this link to be taken there.
In addition we have set up a 12 hour prayer chain each Friday with a team signing up for 30 minute slots between 7.30am and 7.30pm. Let us know if you would like to join in by e-mailing Revd Brenda.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”
And remember, do protect the vulnerable amongst us, please do not leave your home except for essential trips.
