With its position right by the Market Place, Fakenham Parish Church is, in more ways than one, a centre for worship at the heart of the community. We are therefore mindful of people’s many and various needs, and we try to offer variety in worship.
The church is open from 8.30am until around 5.30pm (dusk in the winter months). Throughout the year we hold a number of special services and are always pleased to see new faces. Regular annual services include our Harvest Service, an All Souls Service for the bereaved held near All Saints’ Day (1st November), the Town Service on Remembrance Sunday afternoon, a Christingle service in December along with a very popular Carols Service and Christmas Eve Communion. We offer traditional services for the seasons of Advent, Lent and Easter.
There is always provision of a quiet area in church for private prayer. Normally this is the chapel in the south aisle near the votive stand, where you may light a candle (no charge) as you pray for a particular person or cause. Bibles, prayer books, prayer cards and leaflets are available there.
The main services in our regular weekly pattern of worship are given below.
