It is with great sadness but with thanksgiving that we say goodbye to Francis and Gill Mason at the service on Sunday, August 1st at 11.00am. Do please come and say goodbye and to thank Francis who has been with us for six years. He has been a gentle and compassionate presence in our midst.

Coffee at the Crossroads will take place on Saturday, August 7th from 10.00am. It is not too late to book a stall. Come and have a chat with friends old and new. Free refreshments will be available.

TOMBOLA! Contributions will be gratefully received at The Well House, 20 Barney Road or at the back of the church.

The Norfolk Churches Bike Ride takes place on September 12th. Do please consider cycling or walking to raise money for churches in the area. Half of what is raised will come back to Christ Church. Last year, £450 was received by the village church from the £900 total raised by three cyclists…

A little about us

Christ Church is situated in a working, rural and agricultural setting five miles east of Fakenham, south of the A148. Since recent extensive renovation of the church building, the congregation seeks to serve the local community in as many ways as possible. All are invited to attend not only the regular services but also the extensive range of concerts and other cultural activities which are mounted throughout the year. We welcome the chance to work with our colleagues at Fakenham and strengthening our ties in furthering the work of God’s church in North Norfolk.

Rural communities rely on ever diminishing facilities. So often the shop, the pub and the post office have closed. This is the case in Fulmodeston in North Norfolk. Some do not drive and the bus routes are not plentiful. In this environment a church and its worshippers can provide a village with a great deal that money cannot buy. At the heart of Fulmodeston is the church, literally at the crossroads. A forward thinking Rector decided to abandon the two churches serving Fulmodeston and Croxton. In their place he and his congregation constructed the current church building in 1881 at the middle of the new centre of the village. Today’s congregation has the responsibility to maintain this building into the next century and beyond for another hundred and thirty years, at least.

In recent years several newcomers to the village have brought with them artistic and Christian backgrounds which they have offered enthusiastically to the service of the community. The village and its church have been reinvigorated with new outlooks and talents. The existing community has embraced them and a cheerful mingling of experience has resulted.

The current Parochial Church Council is committed to putting the church at the centre of the Parish, not only in our worship but by reaching out to the community in as many thoughtful, enterprising and collaborative ways as possible.
