Situated in the heart of the beautiful county of Norfolk, the villages of the Heart of Norfolk Group (benefice) form part of the Ingworth & Sparham Deanery in the Diocese of Norwich. We worship God and support our community within the framework of the Church of England.
To donate to the Church of your choice on-line please use the Norwich Diocesan website.

We continue to journey through Epiphany-tide, hearing about the amazing ways God reveals himself to us. Firstly, in the search of the Wise Men; then Jesus’ baptism, when God himself confirms his Son, “the Beloved”. This Sunday, we’ll meet Nathanael – “God has given”, and next week ‘The Wedding at Cana’ (John 2:1-11) – the first “sign”, as John describes Jesus’ miracles, that Jesus shares God’s divine power.
Service plan for January and February
The Heart of Norfolk Team Ministry has decided to suspend public worship in our churches for January. This suspension is likely to continue at least until the next statement by the Prime Minister, expected in mid-February, and may continue through to Easter (4th April). Meanwhile, the PCCs of those churches that were already open for individual prayer hope to keep their churches open. At the time of writing, the situation is as follows:
