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

    Vicar

     Work starts on Tower.  Following the initial erection/dismantling of scaffolding in 2013, for the survey of the work required on the tower, there has been a great deal of activity around our Church tower beginning in June 2014.  Extensive scaffolding is being erected to enable experts to carry out the works necessary, following last year's survey.  This programme of work is planned to to last until December 2014 and fundraising is continuing.  A brochure, supporting the major appeal to help raise the necessary funds to properly repair the tower, has been published and is available in church.

    Now you can help with the repair of the tower of St Nicholas Church and be recorded in the history of North Walsham.  Read this news article for further information and a copy of the "Sponsor A Stone" brochure  also available.

     

    Architect highlights need for major repairs to windows and tower.  Defective pointing is causing trouble and many windows need releading and structural repair.  Copies of the Architect's Reports on repairs required to the Tower and the Roofs.  We are pleased to report that we have passed the first round of the English Heritage application and they are now doing their own detailed surveys to see how they may be able to help us.

     
    Teddy Bear Zip Wire Event   The morning of Saturday 27th September 2014 was busy with numerous teddy bears of North Walsham being winched to the top of the Tower Repair scaffolding and then followed by a zip wire descent into the churchyard.  This fund raising event was to support the ongoing work to the tower.  Refreshments, a Teddy Bear Tombola and a seperate Raffle for prizes of 2 large Teddy Bears raised almost £400 towards the Tower Repair Fund.  The large raffled teddies were won by Rick Greenhill and John Watts.  The event was covered by the local press and the item can be viewed at http://www.edp24.co.uk/news/photo_gallery_and_video_80_year_old_teddy_bear_braves_85ft_zip_wire_to_raise_funds_for_north_walsham_church_despite_having_no_nose_1_3785990 .

    *** UPDATE ***  Following the success of the Zip Wire Event, a second event has been organised for the 29th November.  This time the excitement will be increased for the Teddy Bears of North Walsham and their owners because the Event will take place following the 6 p.m. Switch On of the North Walsham Christmas Lights and will be supported, as in previous years by the North Walsham Christmas Family Workshop inside the church.  This will mean that the teddy bears taking part in the zip wire event will be travelling from the top of the tower repair scaffolding to the far end of the churchyard, in the dark.  This will probably be the last time for a zip wire event to be held before the completion of this phase of the tower repair.

    Text Giving. The parish has now established the facility to utilise Text Giving.  That means that you can text a gift to the Church via your mobile phone. You simply put the text "SNNW01" with the amount you wish to give and send it to "70070".
