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.
SERVICES THIS WEEK:
Public worship has resumed on Wednesdays at 10.00am at Wells and there will be Benefice worship on Sundays at 11.00am. Our buildings remain open at the times below.
We join with others as we extend our condolences to Her Majesty the Queen on the loss of her husband HRH The Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh. A prayer:
God of our lives,
we give thanks for the life of Prince Philip,
for his love of our country, and for his devotion to duty.
We entrust him now to your love and mercy,
through our Redeemer Jesus Christ.
