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.

THE CHURCH IS NOW OPEN BETWEEN 9.30 AM -12.30 PM MONDAY TO FRIDAY, for individual private prayer.  The church is stewarded during this time, with a one way system in place.  Hand sanitiser is available.  Face coverings are required (unless medically exempt) and we operate both the NHS track and trace app and a paper-based system which you are asked to complete.  This is to keep everyone safe.

FUNERALS CAN NOW TAKE PLACE IN THE CHURCH BUT NUMBERS ARE LIMITED TO 30.  Please contact the church office (01692 408971) for further information.


We livestream Morning Prayer (Monday-Saturday) at 9.00am, and Sunday Worship at 10.30pm, with Evening Prayer daily at 6pm.  Please join us from home at <span style="font-size: 1rem;"></span>
