He played such a large part in St Mary's and St Andrew's in the Massinghams and was very involved in village life.

 

 

Dear Lord, 

Bless all of us who mourn for Julian with the comfort of your love. That we may face each new day with hope and the certainty that

JANUARY 2023 - JUNE 2023

MAJOR BUILDING WORKED - CHURCH CLOSED

ST ANDREW'S, CONGHAM

If you have wandered through Congham churchyard in recent weeks you will have seen that scaffolding has been erected around the church. Major building works commenced in the first week of the new year. It is expected that the work will be completed in the early summer. Essential repairs are being carried out on the roof and bell tower and the roof will be re-tiled. There will also be improvements to the electrical wiring, heating and lighting. All of this work is needed to ensure that our much loved historic church building is preserved for the future as a place of
worship and a resource for all the community.

Pedestrian access to the churchyard will still be open via the Church Walk and down the lane from Church Hill.
Sadly we will be unable to hold our popular Coffee and Cake sessions while the church is closed. Keep your eyes peeled for updates in the Village Link, website and notice boards!
