Our aim in creating this website has been threefold:- firstly, to publicize information about our beautiful little church:- times of worship, social events, it's history and architecture; secondly, to share with you our enjoyment of the area in which it is set; and thirdly, to provide you with some thoughtful reading for the quieter moments in your life. Although stemming from the rhythm of the church's year, these articles could well speak meaningfully to you at any time.
Above all, we hope you don't just rush through our lovingly-created pages, but enjoy spending some time with us.

The Revd. Karen Rayner
Sadly our dear friend and late Rector passed away peacefully on September 30th after a long illness fought with bravery and dignity.
The Revd. Karen's funeral service was in St. Mary's Church, Martham it was the most beautiful and spiritual service.
Despite Karen's time as our Priest-in-Charge being cut short by her cruel illness the legacy of her ministry will live on.
Karen set an example to us in the way she lived her life of open and all-embracing welcome; her and Mike's generous hospitality for various meetings and courses surrounded us with warmth and friendship.
We are grateful for the teaching we received from Karen which will continue to be an inspiration to us; how fortunate we were to have known her.
