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.

Church Services and Events

Hemblington Church will be closed for public worship from Thursday 5th November to Wednesday 2nd December following the announcement by the Prime Minister of new restrictions to limit the spread of Covid-19.

The church will however still be open for private prayer on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9.30 am until 5 pm.

Please use hand sanitiser on entering and leaving the church, and leave your name and contact number or use the QR code for use with a mobile phone.

All social events are still suspended until further notice.

Church Opening Times

Hemblington Church is now open to visitors on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9.30 am until 5 pm.

We request that you follow government guidelines by cleaning you hands with the supplied antiseptic gel, providing your contact details and not entering the cordoned off areas.

We hope you enjoy the history and peace of our lovely church.

Bible Quiz

Tony Buttolph has composed a light hearted Bible quiz for church folk and friends to have a go at. His instructions for the quiz are at the top of the page. It is hoped that it will raise a little money for our churches too. The cost is £1.50 with a prize for the winner of £10.00.

Completed quizzes, with your name and contact number, can be placed in the box provided at the back of each church where there is a pot for your contribution. All completed quizzes must be returned by the 25th November. The winner will be announced by email and in church on Sunday 29th November.

You can download the quiz by clicking here.

Updated Heritage Walks

We have recently updated two of our heritage walks and added a third one, all starting and finishing at our church. These can be downloaded from our links page which can be accessed by clicking the Links button at the top of this page.

Take a look inside Hemblington Church

As a retirement project, Andrew Hawkins is building a website which takes a virtual tour of places of interest in and around the historic city of Norwich, presented as a series of interactive 360-degree panoramas in which you, the viewer, can ‘turn the camera’ to look left and right and up and down. He has just added a section about Hemblington Church which contains beautiful views of our church. The Hemblington Church entry can be found at:
