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.

WHAT'S ON in the Benefice
Prayer offered to us by the Bishops of Lynn, Norwich and Thetford
A Message about the reopening of Clippesby Church for a Service.
On this coming Sunday,the 13th of September, at 5p.m. St. Peter's Church will be having a Service of Evening Prayer led by our Rector, Steven. It will be the first Service we have been allowed to hold for six months so it will be a very special evening for Clippesby Church. Social distancing will obviously be in place and as yet we are unable to offer any hospitality to the congregation, but we hope that all these restrictions that prevent us from socialising in the old ways won't last for too much longer. Please don't be nervous about coming to church, it is a lofty space and we are careful to keep people as safe as we can - sanitiser is available on entry - and the congregation is small and friendly.
May God bless you and keep you in the palm of his hand! With love from Clippesby PCC.

Coronavirus Covid-19 Update
We are pleased that ‘The Powers That Be’ have amended the Covid-19 Regulations enabling Clippesby Church to reopen for private prayer. However the guidelines for us to follow are still very strict so, for the present, we will be opening St. Peter’s only on Wednesdays from 10am. to 6pm.
NO facilities will be available.
The Church will be cleaned thoroughly between each opening.
Visitors must observe the following precautions for everyone’s safety:
Maintain social distancing. Use the hand sanitiser provided on entering and on leaving. Avoid touching surfaces.
You may like to use a Book of Common Worship as an aid to prayer (we have put copies on the table by the door)
if so LEAVE THE BOOK BY YOUR SEAT when you depart and it will be made safe for re-use.
We will light a candle in the Chancel as a focus for you but for safety the Chancel and the Tower will be roped off.
People of Clippesby have prayed and worshipped in St. Peter’s for a thousand years and it is our earnest hope that all who come here now will themselves find God’s blessing in this hallowed and peaceful place.
