North Walsham: St Nicholas

St Nicholas' Church, Norfolks' Largest Wool Church.

Seeking to weave faith, hope and love throughout our community.

Welcome to St Nicholas’ Church in the heart of North Walsham. For centuries people have worshipped on this site. They have come for joyful and sad times, for baptisms (christenings), weddings and funerals. They have come for the major festivals of the church at Easter and Christmas. They have silently slipped in and prayed silently and slipped out again during the course of a day. They have gathered Sunday by Sunday to celebrate the resurrection and the good news of Jesus Christ. And we continue to do so today.

 As the COVID pandemic continues, we are very mindful of the need to balance the spiritual and emotional needs that we have always tried to meet at St Nicholas with the vital importance of keeping everyone safe.  

The Church is open for individual private prayer Monday - Friday 9.30am - 12.30pm. 

We have returned to congregational worship on Sundays at 10.30am and continue to live-stream Morning Prayer (Monday-Saturday) at 9.00am daily. Please join us from home at  Orders of service are available under each service on the 'Services and Events' tab, and clicking on the 'More about this event' button will take you directly to our FaceBook page.

There will be Evensong services at 5pm only on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month until further notice.
