Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information
We are delighted that Christ church is now open for worship and individual prayer. As you are no doubt aware, we have now received the welcome news that public worship, small weddings and small funerals will be permitted in church from 4th July. Since the end of July, Christ Church has held four services which have attracted a good number of people who have missed the regularity of weekly worship.
September services planned are
6th Evening Prayer at 6.00pm
13th Holy Communion at 11.00am
27th Evening prayer at 6.00pm
The annual cycle ride (walking, running and driving are also allowed) will take place on Saturday, September 12th in aid of Norfolk Churches. This year, it is even more necessary to raise monies to support the beautiful buildings, often set at the heart of rural communities. Cycling has become more popular in these times as a way of travelling and getting exercise, so please do consider taking part or supporting the cyclists who will be asking for sponsorship.
On the day, here will be an offertory box for donations at the back of the church.
It is hoped that we will be able to celebrate the harvest in some way in October.
We look forward to seeing you soon.

Welcome to Christ Church Fulmodeston
Christ Church Fulmodeston, reaching to the Future at the Heart of the Community
Christ Church is situated in a working, rural and agricultural setting five miles east of Fakenham, south of the A148. Since recent extensive renovation of the church building, the congregations seeks to serve the local community is as many ways as possible. All are invited to attend not only the regular services but also the extensive concerts and other cultural activities which are mounted throughout the year. We welcome the chance to work with our colleagues at Fakenham and strengthening our ties in furthering the work of God’s church in North Norfolk.
Rural communities rely on ever diminishing facilities. So often the shop, the pub and the post office have closed. This is the case in Fulmodeston in North Norfolk. Some do not drive and the bus routes are not plentiful. In this environment a church and its worshippers can provide a village with a great deal that money cannot buy. At the heart of Fulmodeston is the church, literally at the crossroads. A forward thinking Rector decided to abandon the two churches serving Fulmodeston and Croxton. In their place he and his congregation constructed the current church building in 1881 at the middle of the new centre of the village. Today’s congregation has the responsibility to maintain this building into the next century and beyond for another hundred and thirty years, at least.
In recent years several newcomers to the village have brought with them artistic and Christian backgrounds which they have offered enthusiastically to the service of the community. The village and its church have been reinvigorated with new outlooks and talents. The existing community has embraced them and a cheerful mingling of experience has resulted.
The current Parochial Church Council is committed to putting the church at the centre of the Parish, not only in our worship but by reaching out to the community in as many thoughtful, enterprising and collaborative ways as possible.
