Thursday 10th May is Ascension Day and there's a special service of Holy Communion at 10.00 a.m. in the Parish Church. Whatever your age or experience, you'll find a warm welcome and we look forward to seeing you there.

The Parish Church is open daily from about 9 a.m. until about 5 p.m.

We are open all-day, every day (except when a funeral or other private event is taking place) and everyone is welcome to come in and look round. The tower will re-open for the summer season on Monday 7th May. Other than the tower, the whole church is accessible and there is plenty to see, explore and enjoy. The building is a haven of peace in the middle of our busy town and our busy lives. The chapel offers a quiet space, with ideas and resources to help you pray, where you can leave a prayer request, thanksgiving or remembrance. So, whether you're interested in the architecture or the stained glass, want to attend a service or are looking for a few minutes peace and quiet to sit and think and pray, please come in. You're very welcome.

What's the best gift God could give you? We all want to be happy, but why is lasting happiness so hard to find? Our new course, Life Explored, is spread over seven interactive evening sessions and aims to help you identify what you’re really living for by discovering how God can meet your deepest desire for happiness. In a relaxing environment, each session will be supported by our staff with good coffee (or tea!) and cake. Visit the Life Explored website to find out more.  You can also contact us for further information or sign-up online now.

You are invited to Cromer Parish Church for 'A Time to Remember' at 3.30 p.m. on Sunday 15th April 2018. 'A Time to Remember' is a short, reflective service to give thanks for the lives of those whose funerals we have taken over the last two or three years.

Lasting about 50 minutes, with a mixture of familiar hymns, readings and prayers, the service will include an opportunity to remember by name those who have died over the last year. We hope you might feel able to join us for this service, and to bring others for whom it might be helpful.

During the service, there will be an opportunity to hang a heart-shaped card, with a memory or message, on our tree of remembrance. The cards are availalbe from the church office.

On Easter Sunday, 1st April, we celebrate the resurrection of the living Lord Jesus with services at the Parish Church at 9.00 (Communion), 10.45 (All-Age Easter Celebration including a grand Easter egg hunt) and 7.00 (Sunday@Seven with Communion); and at St Martin's at 10.30 (Easter Communion). Whatever your age or experience, you'll find a warm welcome at all our services, and we look forward to seeing you there as we share the greatest good news ever, "Hallelujah! He is risen. He is risen indeed. Hallelujah!"
