Irstead: St Michael's
St Michael's is a Broadland church of character and great charm situated in the hamlet of Irstead,150m from public moorings on the River Ant just below Barton Broad on the Norfolk Broads.
We are a small congregation and would in the past have looked forward to welcoming you to usual our regular Eucharist service on a Sunday morning with coffee and fellowship. Sadly, though during the current situation this is not possible. However you would be most welcome to join us at a short, said, Holy Communion Service on a Wednesday morning at 10am. Across the Benefice there is one 'said' service each week in each church. With winter approaching the pattern of worship and opening times of the churches across our Benefice will be chaning from Monday 2nd November. Irstead Church will continue to be open on a Wednesday from 10am - 3pm with a Holy Communion service at 10am. A hand sanitizing facility will be provided at the church with a request to continue to observe social distancing guidelines.
Our recorded services will continue to be broadcast every Sunday morning and we hope you can join David Smith and members of the community for these services. Details of all the services recorded services since 25th March can be found under Sunday Worship Resources.
It is now possible to give donations online to St MIchael's Church through the Norwich Diocesan website where you will find a link or more details can be found on our News Page.
