Welcome to St Nicholas' Parish Church, North Walsham

  • Welcome to St Nicholas’ Church in the heart of North Walsham. For centuries people have worshipped on this site. They have come for joyful and sad times, for baptisms (christenings), weddings and funerals. They have come for the major festivals of the church at Easter and Christmas. They have silently slipped in and prayed silently and slipped out again during the course of a day. They have gathered Sunday by Sunday to celebrate the resurrection and the good news of Jesus Christ.  And we continue to do so today.

    Why not join us – you will be made very welcome.

    Revd Paul Cubitt

    Sunday Holy Communion Service here at St Nicholas will be starting at 10.30 am from  Advent Sunday  3rd December.    This is to allow the Ministry Team to be able to include their activities at Edingthorpe and Worstead.

    The Angels are being knitted all round North Walsham including in church on 29th November and 13th December 10.00 – 12 noon, so do come along.  A copy of the pattern is available from the Parish Office for anyone who would like to join in, or knit at home and bring them in to have labels and be blessed on Sunday 17th at 10.30 am; then placed around North Walsham during the week leading up to Christmas.  Many people are calling in to the church to find an angel to send to families and loved ones, so a good supply is needed.

    Knitting Squares 8” – 10” also requested to care for hedgehogs, struggling to hibernate – speak to Rachael for details of where to send them.


    The Posada knitted figures will once again be travelling from home to  home round North Walsham, so plan a date to host them, and sign up on the Posada Calendar which will be available shortly.

    In January 2018, we will be starting a girls choir, to complement the boys and St Nicholas Voices. They will rehearse on a Wednesday afternoon 3:30-5:00 but we need female members of the congregation to sit in on their rehearsals. Please speak to David if you feel able to help on one Wednesday a month with supervision, or would like more information. He would also like to hear from anyone who would be willing to do the same thing with the boy choristers on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.


    Adult singers – do consider joining the St Nicholas’ Voices – come along to a rehearsal – usually the 2nd and 4th Thursday at 7.30 pm each month.  The more of us there are, the more we can contribute to all the St Nicholas musical events and services.
