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.
On Sunday 30th January it is our Big Churchyard Birdwatch event from 11 am – 1 pm with warming refreshments! All welcome to help us spot birds visiting the churchyard. Books and binoculars will be available, plus identification help on hand. Results will be sent to the RSPB – a good Citizen Science project for all families are especially welcome
Our Burns Night Supper at Heathlands Community Centre on Saturday 22nd January at 7 pm. There will be a traditional Burns Night supper, “a wee dram”, Address to the Haggis, Toast to the Ladies, and much more. Tickets are £12. Please phone Lynda (01603) 713597, Jill 714164 or Sue 715804 for tickets. Such a good and sociable way to kick off the New Year.

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.
