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.

Lent Courses

There will be two courses running throughout Lent. One will begin on Tuesday 20th February in Hemblington and the other from Wednesday 21st February in Blofield. We will be reading and discussing, ‘Under the Thorn Tree’ where Richard Bewes takes us to the heart of true revival, encouraging us with stories of the Lord’s work around the world. Notices will be given during church services with more details. Please contact the Rector or Churchwardens for further information.

Friends of Hemblington Church Roofstock Event


A huge vote of thanks to all the musicians who organised and played at Heathlands on 2nd December, and gave the 90 people who attended a feast of music and laughter. Many thanks too to Jill and the team at Heathlands for organising the hall and the food, and of course to all those who so generously gave gifts for the prize draw. The bottom line is that £649 profit was raised during the evening – a huge bonus for both the building repairs fund at All Saints Church, Hemblington, and for the Heathlands Social Club funds. Further fundraising events will be organised during 2018 – please check out your local newsletters (and telegraph posts!) for information about these.

Hemblington Musicians

Come and listen to the music! On Sunday 14th January the music at the 9.30am service at Hemblington Church will be by the Hemblington
Musicians, who are an ensemble of woodwind and string instruments, with guitars and vocals. Singing is stronger and more exciting with different instruments playing. Everyone, as ever, is very welcome to join us.

Burns Night at Heathlands

This is a village event jointly organised by Heathlands Community Centre and Hemblington church on Saturday 27th January at Heathlands following the format of previous years. For more information and to reserve tickets contact Lynda on 01603 713597 or Jill on 01603 714164.

RSPB Big Churchyard Bird Watch

A good way to get some fresh air and exercise in late January will be to come along to All Saints Church on Saturday, 27th, between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm to join in the national RSPB Big Churchyard Watch. We will record all birds spotted each hour and send the results in to the RSPB. Being Hemblington there will also be cake and, as it will doubtless be cold, there will be soup available too! This event is organised by the Friends of Hemblington Church.

Make & Mardle

The next Make and Mardle will be on Tuesday 23rd January at Gables Farmhouse, Hemblington Hall Road, Hemblington, NR13 4PT. It will be at the usual time of 10 am to 12 noon. As always there will be coffee, cake, chat and craft (optional); all are welcome. Call 270360 for more information.
