As the churchwardens of St Nicholas, North Walsham we hope you find this website useful and informative.
This is a large and busy church with much happening. The Church is located at the centre of the Market Place and is open every day.
Many people come to light a candle, to say a prayer or leave a prayer request, look around at its amazing history and beauty or just enjoy a little peace and quiet. Above all we hope that you will join us in worship on a Sunday – our main service is the Parish Communion at 10am with associated worship and activities for children.
We do, however, have a wide variety of worship both on Sundays and in the week – full details can be found on this site.
The parish is currently in interregnum and the remaining Ministry Team are continuing to carry out the services.
We look forward to welcoming you personally.

Work starts on Tower. There has been a great deal of activity around our Church tower in May 2013. Extensive scaffolding was erected to enable experts to fully assess the extent of the problems. Following the inspection the scaffolding contractor has taken down the scaffolding, which had extended to the inside of the building as well. 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.
Architect highlights need for major repairs to windows and tower. Defective pointing is causing trouble and many windows need releading and structural repair.
