Church of England Diocese of Norwich Letheringsett with Bayfield

About Us

Due to COVID-19 restrictions it is not possible for us to be open in our normal way, but we hope that will change soon.

As a church community across the Benefice, we endeavour to:

- Be an inclusive church which celebrates human diversity and welcomes all.<div>

- Create a space where people can grow in their Christian faith and discover more of the love of God and of the sacred in life, through prayer and worship.

<span style="font-size: 1rem;">- Can question and explore together, in our joys and struggles, and support one another through mutual care and hospitality.</span>

<span style="font-size: 1rem;">- Be alert to the needs of our local community and the wider world, and committed to solidarity with those who are marginalised.</span>

<span style="font-size: 1rem;">- Celebrate life in all its fullness and care for creation.</li></ul></span>

St Andrew’s Church has a surprisingly grand interior particularly due to its impressive marble reredos. It has wonderful acoustics and is often used for concerts as well as its popular Christmas Carol Service with a large choir and wonderful organ.

It has been modernised to include a sound system, hearing loop, mini kitchen and ever important loo!

There is a regular ministry, with a monthly Communion, for the residents of the elderly care home at Letheringsett Hall.

The Saxon church of St Margaret, now a ruin, is situated in the grounds of Bayfield Hall. This is the responsibility of Letheringsett PCC and once a year, in the summer, the Benefice hold an open-air Service followed by a picnic in the delightful grounds of the Hall.

Letheringsett village, which is situated on the main road from Fakenham to Holt, has a pub, a working water-driven flour mill with the village shop, a ford across the River Glaven and a Nursing Home.

The newly refurbished village hall is used for a wide variety of activities including for Parish Council and PCC meetings. It has a capacity of 100, has central heating and has recently been modified for disabled access.
