Welcome to the website for All Saints Church, Hemblington. We do not know who built our church or when. What we worship in each week is a beautiful and simple building. The clear glass windows allow the light to flood the building. We gaze out at the rolling fields that surround the churchyard. This delightful building is very much part of the environment as the environment is part of the church.

This is a church that takes the visitor far away from the rush of a busy world. The round tower reminds us of the long history of Christian worship on this site. Within it one of the country's largest wall paintings of St Christopher greets the visitor. The uncluttered interior, medieval bench ends and magnificent font all tell stories of faith and worship throughout the centuries.

We are holding another craft fair on Saturday 30th May starting at 10 am. All the usual stalls will be there including craft, cards, curtains, cushions, locally produced eggs and plants. Refreshments will be served. Free entry. For more details call 270360.

Annual Parish Church Meeting

Our Annual Parish Church Meeting for Hemblington will be on Thursday 23rd April at 7.30pm at the church. Everyone is welcome to attend but only those who are on the electoral roll can vote. Following this meeting there will be an opportunity for everyone to meet our new Priest in Charge, Rev Kevin Billson. Refreshments will be served.

Licensing of Our New Priest in Charge

On Tuesday 21st April at 7 pm at Blofield Church our new Priest in Charge, Rev Kevin Billson, will be licensed by The Bishop of Norwich. This will be followed by light refreshments.

This is both an important and exciting milestone in the life of our Benefice and we hope that many from the Parishes will support this event to meet Kevin and his wife Helene whom we are very much looking forward to welcoming.

Please could those attending consider parking in the car parking areas at the Margaret Harker Hall (prior permission has been arranged) and then walking through to the church along the footpath. A torch may prove useful for the way back.

If you have any questions regarding this event, please do not hesitate to contact any of the Church Wardens at Blofield, Hemblington or North Burlingham (details at the front of this magazine or on the websites).

Update on Development Project – Report from April 11th

Unfortunately the project has been delayed due to the late arrival of the joinery. Until the building is secure, there is little to be done inside, as the weather would affect it. The joinery should be here later this month. This means that the work will not finish on the 8th May, as planned. The rendering is due to be done next week, and then the scaffolding will be taken down. The site will be tidied up ready for the beginning of May.

Make & Mardle

Our next session will be on Thursday 23rd April from 10 am to 12 noon at Hemblington Church. There will be craft activities, knitting and chat with tea/coffee and cake. Please join us to share your craft experiences or just for a good mardle. Everyone is welcome
