Our organist Rory Marsden recently recorded a performance of Medieval Music in our church for the Festival of Medieval Music in the Dales which this year was online. Rory’s performance can now be seen on YouTube.
For more information about the Dales festival please visit their FaceBook page at https://www.facebook.com/medievalmusicinthedales.
Our church is open on Tuesday, Thursday and after the morning service on Sunday, as part of the Heritage Open Days festival. There is a small exhibition in church outlining the conservation management of the churchyards and showing photographs of some of the birds, butterflies, dragonflies and bees seen during wildlife surveys there. It is also a good opportunity to view the unique wall painting of St Christopher, the octagonal font and several pre-Reformation structures inside the church. If the church is not open, there is some information in the south porch about the plants in the churchyards and a “Walk around the outside” guide to the stones which have been used to build the church – they are not all flint! We hope you will come and have a look and enjoy the beauty of the church and the churchyards and the surrounding area.
We have also created a presentation about the floral and fauna around our church.

Hemblington Church is now open to visitors on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9.30 am until 5 pm and on Sundays after the service 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 cordon off areas.
We hope you enjoy the history and peace of our lovely 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:
But have a look round the rest of the website for interesting insights into our local heritage.
For anyone who is researching family history in the Hemblington area we have a page explaining how you can access our church records.
This can be found here.
