Welcome to Fakenham Parish Church
What sort of church are we?
I have been here just a few months and I am still listening and looking. 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, a monthly “Bridges” all age worship 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. At the centre of our worship life is the Weekly Parish Communion which is sung with the help of our excellent choir. This is a traditional Anglican service using Common Worship. Finally, on Thursday mornings there is a thirty minute quiet communion, an oasis of calm from the bustle of market day.
I hope some of this helps!
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 scripture.
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.
