<span style="font-size: 1rem;">A church has stood in Kettleburgh since at least Saxon times.  Domesday book tells us that in King Edward's time Edric Grim held the manor of Kettleburgh as one manor, for four carucates of land, half under the patronage of St Etheldreda's (Ely Abbey), and half under that of Edric of Laxfield.  In 1086 it was held by Count Alan.  The present church dates mainly from the 14th century, but the structure incorporates earlier work, for during repairs carried out in 1952 remains of a small window, thought to be Saxon, were uncovered.  There is also a 13th century coffin slab in the chancel, and a stone coffin built into the south east wall of the nave - presumably pre-dating the construction of the wall.</span>

 <span style="font-size: 1rem;">Our Orebeck Benefice Pilgrims' Prayer</span>

Open our hearts to your love, Father God, as we journey with you;

Renew us each day, as we dwell in your presence.

Encourage us when we feel downtrodden,

Bring us comfort when we are sad.

Enliven us so that we may always be ready to serve You, and

Care for others in the strength of God’s love.

Kindle, we pray, all that works towards the coming of your kingdom. Amen
