Welcome to St Nicholas' Parish Church, North Walsham

  •  

    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 has just finished its period in interregnum (see 'Latest News' below) and the remaining Ministry Team will be working to assist the recently installed Revd. Paul Cubitt to resume the full range of services.

    We look forward to welcoming you personally.

    Lois Sherman and Nancy Heywood,

    Churchwardens

    Appointment of New Incumbent                  The Bishop of Thetford led the service for the Collation and Induction of the Revd. Paul Cubitt as the new Vicar of the Benefice of St Nicholas, North Walsham and All Saints, Edingthorpe on Thursday 17th July 2014.  We had a beautiful warm evening and following the service refreshment were served by Mark (Cockerel Tearoom) and were enjoyed by all who stayed.  There was plenty of opportunity for socialising and conversation, between the different communities, as we were able to utilise the grassed area of the churchyard near the church rooms.  Paul, his wife Clare and sons Edward and Oliver have moved into the vicarage.  Please remember them in your thoughts and prayers as Paul starts his new ministry and the family their new life in the North Walsham Benifice.  Lois and Nancy.

     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.
