Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information
In view of the rapidly escalating number of cases of COVID-19 in Norfolk, and in our area, we are today (3rd January) announcing that we are temporarily pausing collective worship until things improve. It is sad to have to do this but we believe most people will understood that in the current circumstances our priority must be to look out for our neighbours and protect the vulnerable.
We will keep the matter under constant review and reopen the church for collective worship as soon as we feel it is safe to do so again.
The church will remain open daily for personal prayer and as a quiet space for anybody to sit and think. All are welcome.
Please observe appropriate social distancing and use the hand sanitiser provided (or your own) when entering and leaving the building.
See home page for more information.
For the foreseeable future the podcasts of Morning Prayer (Monday- Friday) and Morning Worship each Sunday will be available via the church website for everyone to listen to wherever they may be.

After the snows come the spring and a feeling of optimism that lockdown rules will be relaxed. On this account, Christ Church is planning to reopen in April for Easter, the time of rebirth and resurrection.
April 2nd at 9.30am Good Friday Service
April 4th at 10.30am Easter Sunday Holy Communion
These services will be said and social distancing rules and the wearing of masks will be in operation.
Further services and events will be announced in the April newsletter. The church remains open for private prayer and we continue to be thankful for all the produce that has been left in the porch for the Foodbank.

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.
