Welcome to the Hempnall Group of Parishes



    We are a group of eight rural churches south of Norwich, Norfolk, and one of the oldest groups still working together in the country.

    On this website, you will find information about our services, our churches and our activities.

    Our churches are always open. Please drop in, stay a while or linger longer and enjoy the peace to pray, to look, or just sit and stare.

    There is regular worship in individual churches and we come together monthly for group services. Forthcoming services are listed on this page.

    As God’s people in these villages, we believe it is important to reach out in love and the power of the Holy Spirit to all and share the good news of Jesus.

    We hope you enjoy your visit to this site and our churches.
