Our vision for 2025 is:
to see hundreds of lives transformed by Jesus
with a vibrant church community of 1,000 people
as we release missional disciples
and intentionally invest in Families, Children and Youth.
The Parish Church has stood at the centre of Cromer for well over 600 years, though Cromer Church is not primarily its buildings but its people. We are a people who have discovered the good news and transforming power of Jesus and are living to share that with others as we seek to live lives that bring glory to God and to "transform lives with Jesus Christ.”
Who we are
We are Cromer Church; an Anglican church in the Church of England Diocese of Norwich. We have two church buildings: the Parish Church (dedicated to St Peter and St Paul) in the town centre and St Martin's in Mill Road, in the Suffield Park area of town.
Our tradition is evangelical, but finding the right terms to describe us more fully is not easy. Each of our Sunday services has a different feel and we have consciously tried to avoid using the ‘party’ labels when explaining who we are. We take the Bible seriously as God’s Word and are increasingly open to the work of the Holy Spirit in worship and ministry. We are expectant about God’s future plans for us and have begun to explore and develop new ways of serving and reaching out to the community.
We aspire to be generous, gracious and welcoming. Many people come to us because of our emphasis on strong, evangelical preaching and teaching; others because of our style of worship. Many more come simply because we are their local church. We value their contribution, regardless of age or background, and we invite all who 'love the Lord a little and want to love Him more' to take bread and wine at Communion. We are not perfect, but are striving to be an authentic Christian community, shaped by God’s Word and open to His Spirit, for this part of north Norfolk in the 21st Century.
If that is the kind of Church you would like to be part of, then we would love to have you with us!
