We care for people too...

Church buildings matter because people matter.

Every church building – old or new – is built for the purpose of enabling people to gather together to pray and worship God.

The Diocese of Norwich (which manages this website) is the Church of England across the areas of Norfolk and Waveney. Together we are a Christian presence serving every community through a family of 650 churches and 110 schools and academies.  We provide support to those caring for church buildings, breathing life and soul into them to provide a warm, welcoming environment and helping preserve each one for future generations.

Our churches receive no government funding, and their care and maintenance is the responsibility of the local church council.

Churches included on this site

As well as churches within the Diocese of Norwich, this website includes churches located in Norfolk which are in the Dioceses of Ely and St Edmundsbury & Ipswich, as well as churches owned and managed by independent trusts.

All churches are cared for by dedicated volunteers and there may be occasions when a church cannot be open. We direct you to individual church websites for more details and for Sunday service dates and times.
