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.
A View from the Pew, June 2017
Summer activities get into full swing with the arrival of the Purcell School Young Musicians for a concert on Saturday, June 24th at 6.00pm. Entry is free with a retiring collection to cover costs and for the church. During the days of their visit, the musicians will be working in schools in the area, inspiring young children to become engaged in all aspects of music. The concert is a must for anyone with an interest in all styles of music performed to an exceptionally high standard. This is an ideal way to introduce young people to live performance in a fun, relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.
Coffee at the Crossroads will be held on Saturday, August 5th from 10.30am until 1.00pm. Please contact Stephen on 878364 if you would like a free pitch for a stall.
Please join us for our regular services in June.
We look forward to welcoming you to Christ Church
