St. Peter's, Clippesby is in the Benefice of Flegg (Martham)
We are in interregnum at present and the vacant post of a Priest-in-Charge is to be advertised in June for interview(s) in July.Everyone is hoping that we might have a Minister before the year is out.
Our Benefice consists of four churches with one Priest-in-charge, we are fortunate to have two retired priests to take Holy Communion Services and help.
The four churches are:
St. Mary's Martham, which is the largest; it is grade 1 listed and referred to as 'The Cathedral of the Fleggs'. It is in receipt of a grant to carry out repairs.
St. Peter's & St Paul's, Repps-cum-Bastwich, the second largest church. It is thatched with a round tower & is hoping to undergo restoration too. It has good car parking for services.
St. Edmund's Thurne, Has been recently rethatched & restored and looks fantastic. It occupies a proud position with a superb view of the Bure Valley Sadly, its Church wardens, having recently retired, have applied to the Bishop for the church to be 'mothballed' which will be - hopefully - just a temporary measure.
St. Peter's Clippesby is the smallest of the four churches, and is a little gem. It has a round tower, some beautiful stained glass, mediaeval brasses & more.
There is an established pattern of services for the churches which is undergoing change at the present
Martham church usually has a service every Sunday from 11am.
Repps church services are usually on the second & fourth Sundays in the month starting at 9.30am.
Clippesby's services, like those of Repps, are on the second & fourth Sundays at 11am but in July this may change to the 1st & 3rd.
Please refer to the monthly timetable for details
