On Friday 10th November at Hemblington Church 6 pm until 8 pm. A fun alternative to Halloween with traditional games, lantern making, crafts, sparklers, biscuit decorating, a barbecue and more. Something for everyone regardless of age. Come along and bring the whole family. There is no charge for this event.
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.
In November Make and Mardle will be at Hemblington Hall, Hemblington Hall Road NR13 4EF on Tuesday 21st November. 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.
For anyone who is researching family history in the Hemblington area we have a page explaining how you can access our church records.

Our next big event will be the “Roofstock” gig at Heathlands on Saturday, 2nd December from 7.30 pm.
