Norwich: St George, Tombland
St George's is the flint church with the blue clock, the pretty garden, the blossom trees, just behind the Edith Cavell Pub. Join us if you're looking for a relaxed, easy-going, inclusive church in the catholic tradition, with bells and incense, services with (some of) the old words and real hymns.
We are open for services on Sundays and Fridays (but please check notices for changes to these things). Please see the events page for festivals and other events both here and in our sister churches. Between April and September we aim to open for visitors on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 12 noon, but this is subject to change depending on the availability of keyholders, so please do get in touch before making a special journey.
These pages also give you links to resources for how you can be part of our virtual congregation if you can't come to church yet. One of our Sunday services (here or at Colegate) is streamed on Zoom so that those unable to attend may follow from a computer or by phone. There is also a prayer group on Zoom.
Do get in touch if you are in need of prayer. We are praying for you and for the world, and would be glad to have you pray with us in Church or from your own home.
You can also follow us on facebook (see "social" links in the menu on the left).
We are working with Eco Church to improve our carbon footprint and other ways in which we cause an impact on the wellbeing of others and of our planet, and we are pleased to have been awarded the silver award in 2023. Click on the item on the left for suggestions for small things you can do at home and in your Christian life: this is an important part of our contribution to treading lightly on God's earth.
