Current news

baptism 2Confirmation is the Anglican Church's way of affirming for ourselves the promises made on our behalf by parents and Godparents when we were baptised as babies.

If you are considering confirmation or baptism (for a child or for yourself) or sea baptism in July, please contact us to talk it over.

Welcome boardThe Parish Church is open daily; normally from about 9 o'clock until about 4.30 in winter (5.30 or later during the summer) and we welcome visitors.

The tower is open at Easter, then from Monday 4th May until the end of October half-term, normally from 10.30-4.30 Monday to Friday and 11.00-3.00 on Saturday, except when the church is in use for weddings, funerals and other services etc.  The tower is not open on Sundays. Stewards are on duty when the tower is open (and, occasionally, at other times) to answer questions and to help you make the most of your visit. The chapel is always available for private prayer and reflection and has a range of interactive prayer ideas to help you take advantage of this opportunity to reflect and pray. The whole church is accessible, except for the tower, the only access to which is a steep, narrow, spiral, stone stair with more than 150 steps.

Alpha gives everybody a chance to ask those big questions about life that we all have and to see what the Bible has to say about the answers.

Alpha starts on Tuesday 13th October and everyone is welcome. There are eight weekly sessions. They take place in the Cornerstone Coffee Bar in the Parish Hall, Church Street on Tuesday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. Each evening starts with a two-course meal. To help with catering, please let us know you are coming and who you plan to bring with you. You can download an invitation card or contact us for more information.

baptism 2 smWhat Sunday Services do you have?

There are normally four services on a Sunday.

The 9.00 Communion at the Parish Church offers a quieter and more reflective start to the day. Lasting around 55 minutes, it is based around more traditional texts, with hymns, organ, the choir and a shorter talk.

The 10.30 services at the Parish Church and St Martin's are family-friendly and contemporary in style. With more extensive teaching, provision for children and teens and a crèche.

The 6.30 service at the Parish Church is our most informal service but has a strong focus on teaching and worship. The pattern normally includes Communion once a month.

Light Party graphicThis year's Light Party takes place on Saturday 31st October between 6.00 p.m. and 7.30 p.m. in the Parish Hall.

It's suitable for all ages and everyone is welcome.

At this time of year, many will be celebrating some of the darker things in this world. Instead, join us for this all-age party to celebrate Jesus, ‘the light of the world’.

2015-10 Canaan gifts for Hungarian orphanageEvelyn Smith, Director of the Canaan Christian Centre in Sheringham (one of our Mission Partners) recently appealed for donations of £5 or Christmas 'treats' make up gift bags for the 86 children in the orphanage in Hungary that we have been supporting for many years.

Thanks to the generosity of donors, those bags have now all been completed and packed, and will be taken to Hungary by our autumn work party, later this month.

Thank you!

Cromer Parish Church Just in case you think you've missed something... we had technical problems on 27th September so, sadly, there are no Podcasts for that day.
