Welcome to the Church of Saint Mary's North Creake

The Church of Saint Mary is the village church of North Creake. Our worship follows traditional forms using the Book of Common Prayer.

The interior of North Creake, apart from its roof, is mostly an 1890s restoration of a Decorated chancel and Perpendicular tower and nave. The restoration is said to be faithful but has deprived North Creake of much of the patina of age. The most noticeable feature of the nave is the roof, which retains some of its old paint. This fine Anglian hammerbeam has gaudy angels that look rather oriental. The aisle roofs are simpler but also original. Even the restored chancel roof apparently uses the original members, though its angels look modern. Above the chancel arch are the remains of a Doom painting, defaced by the chip marks of its plastering. Beyond is a decorated chancel containing a fine group of piscina, sedelia and Easter Sepulchre.

East Anglia Ministries Fair Norwich Cathedral Saturday 13 May

Ministries Fair 2016
Ministries Fair 2016

The East Anglia Ministries Fair is coming to Norwich Cathedral on Saturday 13 May.

Our aim is to inspire people with new possibilities for mission and service, in the Church and the wider community. The Ministries Fair comes on the back of Vocation Sunday on 7 May and is a great way to get people talking about vocation and the many ways God calls us – whether as part of a team for a few hours a month, or as our job and life’s work.

The Ministries Fair will fill the Cathedral with stands representing community projects, church ministries, mission organisations, local and national charities. We’ll also have a performance stream in the North Transept featuring musicians and artists who’ll perform their work and speak about art as a vocation. There’ll be workshops, demonstrations and presentations from various exhibitors throughout the day.

The Ministries Fair will be launched by the Dean at 10.30am, and will be open all day – with Refectory refreshments in the South Transept – until Evensong at 3.30pm.

    1 Corinthians 5
    1 It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father's wife. 2 And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you. 3 For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed,
