Church of England Diocese of Norwich St. George, Tombland, Norwich

Announcements and News

New appointment:  We are delighted to announce that with effect from 9 April 2018 Fr Alaric Lewis has been licensed as our Assistant Curate, a role he will hold until he becomes Priest in Charge of this church (in addition to St George Colegate) on 5th June 2018.

At present we are in a short period of interregnum. From 5th June we shall enter into a new joint benefice with St George, Colegate - the two separate parishes of St George remaining independent but working and drawing closer together under Fr Alaric.

Fr Alaric was formerly a priest in the Diocese of Europe serving as Chaplain of the Anglican Chaplaincy of Saint Andrew, Costa Del Sol East, Spain where he looked after four different parishes over a large geographical area.

Fr Alaric’s biography is available on his website at
