The parish church in Fakenham is in the centre of the town. It is at the natural hub of the town’s residential and shopping areas. We can be busy through the week but at other times provide a place of stillness and peace. We have a relatively large congregation which could lead to the risk of complacency. However we are constantly seeking new ways to build bridges into the community in order to be of service (e.g. our Support in Loss Group) and to share the Christian faith (e.g. our Enquirer Groups). As well as the regular Sunday and Thursday morning services we also offer weekly Stepping Stones sessions for under 5’s, Messy Church, Healing Services and Choral Evensong. Check out our latest news below and don’t forget to follow us on Facebook for up to date information about what we’re doing.
As a church, we’re very fortunate to have the support of a number of excellent retired clergy and two Licensed Readers, Elaine and Amanda, so if you come along to a service you will benefit from a varied diet in terms of the talks and the faces at the front. I hope our church is not simply a big building which you can spot from a long way off, or a venue for our famous Christmas Tree Festival: my hope is for the church and the town to feel as one, as if the ancient walls and windows, however much loved, are invisible.
