On Saturday 2nd September at 10.30 am at Norwich Cathedral Hemblington Church member Sue Shillam will be licensed as a Reader for The Blofield Benefice By Bishop Graham.

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.
This event takes place on Saturday 9th September and raises money to support both our church and The Norfolk Churches Trust. Our Church has several people who are participating this year and they would greatly appreciate your sponsorship. They are:
Rev Kevin & Helene Billson (single form)
Sponsorship forms are available in the Churches.
