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.

    Rev Paul Cubitt



    Lent starts with Ash Wednesday on 10th February 2016 with a Day of Prayer using the Monastic offices (Times and details of all Services at St Nicholas and All Saints will be available later).  A full programme of Services and Groups planned are on the “purple” leaflet available NOW at the back of church, with a response slip to help indicate how many to expect at Groups.  ALL ARE WELCOME including those who belong to other churches, or no church at all.

     Project Host

    Our parish church's patron is none other than the original Santa Claus!

    Saint Nicholas – also known as Santa Claus – was a 4th century bishop in Turkey, not far from the Syrian border, who always kept a special eye out for those in danger or distress.  One famous story sees him secretly dropping bags of money down a chimney by night for three girls who were just about to be sold into slavery ….


    An amazing response to support children in Syria and surrounding countries, at this cold and desperate time.  A very big thank you.
    View​ this 'Save the Children' link to see their objectives.

     Forward Planning:  The weekend of 28 – 30th May 2016 - “Wrought about with many Colours”, an Exhibition of Vestments here in Church.
