Welcome to Fakenham Parish Church
What sort of church are we?
I have been here just one year and I am still listening and learning. I have discovered a very warm and welcoming community of believers who are good at hospitality. Indeed the church building is open each day and used on many of those days for both church and parish related events.
In terms of worship, we offer a variety of forms of worship. This includes a weekly “Stepping Stones” service for parents and toddlers and a monthly “Messy Church”. At the other end of the spectrum there is a monthly Choral Evensong on par in quality with any cathedral. Each Sunday starts with an early morning traditional Prayer Book communion. Mid morning Parish Communion includes plenty of singing with the help of our excellent choir. This is an Anglican service using Common Worship. Each Thursday morning there is a thirty minute quiet communion, an oasis of calm from the bustle of the towns famous market. Finally, we have introduced a service of healing. This happens quarterly on a Sunday evening and has a growing number of people who attend. Having said that the team here is always happy to pray with people on a Sunday, market day or by appointment.
What are my hopes for the church?
I believe that the church should be a transforming presence that brings healing and wholeness to each other and the community around.
I would like to see us grow in number, depth of spirituality and knowledge of the scriptures.
I would like to see each member of our faith community feel they have a part to play in our life and worship and more widely for the kingdom of God.
If you are reading this wondering if you might join us there is only one acid test. Come and meet us. You, your gifts and skills will be welcomed.
