OUR CHURCH

"The most exciting

14th Century decorated church in Norfolk"

Nikolaus Pevsner

A brief history of St Mary's

St Mary's church with its 175 foot tall tower and spire, sits on high ground above the village of Snettisham, West Norfolk, and was often a landmark for mariners navigating The Wash.

 

The present church was built in 1340, but a previous church existed and Snettisham village was built around it. The Black Death sadly destroyed the original village.
 

St Mary's church was regarded by architectural historian Nikolaus Pevsner as the best "decorated" church in East Anglia. Its stone spire, soaring 175 feet, is a rarity in Norfolk, with only the Cathedral and three other churches having one. 

 

The stained-glass windows alone are spectacular with an equally impressive Medieval pulpit and eagle lectern. Various hatchments decorate the vestry and, for such a small Norfolk village, St Mary's dominates the skyline.

As well as being a centre for Christian worship for over 700 years, the church provides a safe haven from the busyness of 21st Century life - and regularly holds concerts, recitals and other events which attract both church and village alike.

LIVE ZOOM COURSE

Every Wednesday throughout Lent

Following on through Lent you are welcome to zoom in with Rachel every Wednesday evening as we look at a Lent course called Face to Face.

"This study course, which can be used by a group meeting online, takes the theme ‘Face to Face’, using news stories from 2020 as well as passages from the Bible. The hope is that as we listen and talk together we will learn more about how we come face to face with the living God, even at a time when meeting physically face to face with other human beings is so difficult."
