Welcome

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.

Flower Festival

We are pleased to announce the return of our popular Flower festival on Saturday 10th September, 9.30 am to 5.30 pm, and Sunday 11th September, 10.30 am to 5.30 pm.

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:

But have a look round the rest of the website for interesting insights into our local heritage.
